The first units to arrive at Quatre Bras were the Brigades from the 2nd Dutch Belgian Division, commanded by Baron Perponcher-Sedlnitsky. The division consisted of two Brigades, the first commanded by Count Van Bylant, the second by the Prince of Saxe-Weimar. The first brigade consisted of a unit of Jagers, a unit of Belgian Line, and three battalions of militia. The second brigade consisted of the 2nd Nassua-Ussigen Light Regiment, the 28th Nassau Orange Regiment, and a company of Jager volunteers. The division was supported by two batteries of artillery, one a field battery and the other a horse battery.
After the Brunswick infantry and artillery, these were next units I had actually painted for the Quatre Bras project. The Perry Miniatures Nassau and Dutch Belgian ranges for 1815 have these units, plus others needed for Waterloo if you want to 'do the big one,' Waterloo.
So let's look at the first brigade, with the 7th Belgian line first. The Belgian line units wore a dark blue coat with white facings and the Belgic 'false front' shako. The 7th was stationed near and later in the Bossu woods.
The next unit is the 27th Jager battalion, a Dutch unit. The jagers held a long part of the frontage early on in the battle, got caught in skirmish order by the French light cavalry and suffered heavy losses. The uniform was a dark green coat with yellow facings and grey trousers.
The Horse Artillery battery supported the First Brigade near the Gemeincourt farm.The unit was armed with six pounders.
So that's all I have for now on the Dutch Belgian Brigade, except for General Perponcher....so here.
