East prussian Infantry regiments

Hear are the regular infantry from Mecklenburg's 2nd BRIGADE. They are the 1st and 2nd East prussian Infantry regiments. A total of 6 battalions. Each regiment has one battalion of fusiliers and two battalions of musketeers. The fusilier battalion has black straps and no flag. The musketeers battalions do have flags, and also white straps. The colour of prussian facings depending on their province of origin. For east prussia this was the colour red. From what Ive read it seems that this was an orange type red so I just painted the orange. Note how the shoulder straps indicate the battalion number. White for first, red for second.
