El Ejercito Magnifico, Regimental Guide (4)

Today we turn our attention to the pride of the Amarillo, the Guardia Real. Originally the regiment was three battalions strong; more recently it has been reorganized, the grenadiers of the original battalions being converged to form a fourth battalion, the Granadaros Real.

The regiment's battle record is curiously cursory, due in part (it is said) to the extraordinary expense of its uniforms. The proprietor of the regiment is traditionally the High King himself, and the expenses of the regiment are drawn from the household budget.
Both the Leibfahne (in this case, the royal
banner of Casa de Yayubetja) and the Regimentsfahne of the First Battalion are included.

Very fancy proper attire for the Royal regiment.

Yes, but just try keeping those cuffs clean on campaign -- can't be done. ;-)

Be that as it may, though, the senor is too kind.

Very fitting for the Guard of a sunny country.

I like the uniforms a lot.

Great job as usual. Reich Duke Wilhelm has invested you into the Ancient and Honorable Order of the Tankard for your inspirational efforts.

The Reich Duke honors our humble efforts, seƱor. His Majesty the High King wishes me to convey his boundless gratitude.
