Model Drawings - Volume 4

When m/1686 had finally been replaced by m/1766 the War College commissioned in 1768 a new set of model drawings from Jacob Gillberg. The result came the following year in the form of a book, from which the pictures below are taken. However, several of these drawings appear if you take a closer look to be very odd. There was no Gästrikland company in Livregementet so this provincial coat of arms would not be part of any standard. The Life Dragoon Regiment, which had replaced the old Åbo & Björneborg Cavalry Regiment, is not depicted with white colours as is custom for household regiments. Instead they are incorrectly portrayed with red dragoon colours based on the old cavalry regiment's standards. Jacob Gillberg have also missed that Nyland & Tavastehus Cavalry Regiment had been converted to dragoons already in 1721 (see correct model drawings for them in volume 3, no 134-136). Bohuslän Dragoon Regiment has curiously enough got a cavalry standard with the provincial coat of arms of Halland.
