Do you happen to know the following:
When did the 92e Ligne get detached and why?
To which brigade was it attached to?
Was it still detached while in the Colonne vuide?
As for the 18e Leger, I take it that Charles commanded the 3e and 4e bataillons on the 6th of July.
The situation of the 93e and the 18e Leger is not a common situation but it does happen. I remember when I was young and stupid, I had business to attend to at another Regiment, when I walked into their headquarters, I found the old 1st Battalion Colours from my own Regiment posted in the corner.
This was unacceptable to have a Training Regiment holding our Battalion Colours. I was bound and determined that I was going to bring the Battalion Colours back at any cost -Regimental Pride and all...
Luckily I did not make a very good burglar because I was caught in the act of retrieving the Colours. The Officer who caught me was kind enough to explain how the 1st battalion had broken off to form a new Regiment...of course it cost me dearly at the Mess...yes paint me stupid indeed!
