Summary

Eskadronstandarte of Bredow Cuirassiers. This standard replaced an "FWR" pattern standard issued around 1717, that was captured in an ambush at Holitz (July 12 1758). When the regiment surrendered at Maxen (November 20 1759) this standard and one other were presented by Maria Theresa to Joseph, Comte de Saint-Ignon (1720-1779). Saint-Ignon presented this standard to the Saint George Crossbow Guild of Ghent, Belgium, of which Saint-Ignon was a member, and laid up in their chapel.
