4th Swiss Regiment

4th Swiss Regiment

Centurion Toy Soldiers present you with Cold Steels First battalion of the 4th Swiss Regiment. The Grenadiers of the 4th Swiss saw a lot of action during the early battles of the Peninsular War. They fought at Rolica and were with the French 86th line at the battle of Vimiero, where they fought hand to hand with British infantry in the village itself. 

The 4th Swiss also went into Russia with Napoleons Grande Army where they fought at the 1st and 2nd battles of Polotsk and the Beresina. The uniform would have been the same when they entered Russia as when they fought in the peninsula so these soldiers are suitable for either campaign.


 I sincerely hope you like them
