Swedish Order of Battle at Narva

The image is a cut-out from a map in the work by the Swedish General Staff: "Karl XII på slagfältet". To see the whole map you only need to click in the image. Which regiment each box represent is shown in the presentation on this page.

Note that four battalions belonged to a temporary Finnish regiment consisting of contingents from six provincial Finnish regiments. Because the exact composition of these four battalions is not known it is difficult to determine what uniforms they wore. I have however made educated guesses based on which regiments the battalion commanders belonged to. Gustaf Adolf Mellin was a recently appointed colonel of Viborg Regiment, Ernst Lode was lieutenant colonel of Björneborg Regiment and Patrik Sass was a captain of Savolax Regiment. Which regiment the fourth battalion commander, major Otto Reinhold Berg, belonged to have I not been able to determine so I have arbitrarily chosen to represent his battalion with the uniforms of Nyland Regiment (thus enabling all Finnish colour combinations to be represented here).
