The KAGGR # 1 on parade .They wear the parade miters which were handed down to the regiment by the 1 Garde
Regt. zu Fuss after they received their new silver front miters .To the left is the flag of the I Batl. with the special
" Dresden " parade banner .The flag has a Colburg 1807 banner made into the flag body .The pole top is an 1813 Grand Cross
of the Iron Cross . The flag was replaced in 1900 .Next is the flag of the IV Batl which was given on 1894 . The IV Batl has a cyphered
pole top . All 4 Batl flags of the regiment were looted by the Russians after WWII and taken to Moscow where they were trooped in their Victory Parade .

The I Batl of the KAGGR # 1 was formed on 1814 .For the 100 year Anniv. of the regiment
on 1914 a special Sakular Parade Banner was awarded to the flag .I have this Sakular banner in my collection .
The II Batl . was raised by drawing troops from Grenadier Regts. 1 and 3 so they were allowed the tradition
of these two regiments and their Sakular Parade Banner carries the dates of 1655 and 1685 .This Sakular
Banner is also in my collection

Steve, I am totally amazed at the apparent extent of your collection. You have let us peek in a few times but from what you have shown, I'm betting that your collection is awesome. Thank you.

Fortunately, I have met with Steve on several occasions at the SOS. He is a true gentleman of the South and always stops off at our tables to show James and I his latest finds. Most times we are left shaking our heads, never seen that before, where did he find that?? Indeed, he has an awesome collection.
