Regiment of the Day
Light infantry is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the Prussian army during the 1806 campaign.
However, the Saxon forces which fought at Jena, contained a high proportion of light troops compared to the Prussians. Especially in the Advanced Guard Division, we find 3 'regiments' (at Battalion strength) brigaded to form a large brigade of light troops.
