Swedish napoleonic reenacting

Hello all!

I thought that would share a video of our last reenactment of light infantry skirmishes outside of Uppsala from october. Me and some friends from our reenacting group here in Umeå went down in our russian uniforms to give the swedes a beating. This is filmed from the russian perspective, except from the ending when our camera man was captured! The link will open up in a new window.




Regards,

    1. Truly a blessing! Last time we were there it rained all night and was hot during the day. A good skirmish.

    1. Thank you Dan! In our association we have the capability to reenact as either the Royal swedish Västerbotten line regiment, or as russians. Maybe next time!

      Furthermore, one of my friends at the Army museum in Stockholm has recently gotten a stipend to write a book on swedish uniforms during the revolutionary and napoleonic era. I may do some illustrations in that book.

  4. I liked the moment when the Swedes were pressing on.
    Very atmospheric.

    1. Oh yes. We were lucky to get that shot from the side of their "jägarkedja" (jäger-chain). Nothing was planned or so, we are really happy with the result!

      In the future we will have to film even more.

      On another note, I don't have anymore information on the Royal swedish horse artillery yet. Still waiting for that.
