- Jun 2, 2005Yes, I was curious about this, too. Been reading Smyth's regs of 1812 and he mentions
two companies of Grenadiers with each battalion. I fear I am still in research 101 and
hopefully can glean the expertise of this group.
Were the Grenadiers distinguished from the regular line companies in any way, in uniform,
function and the like? Were they detached and converged into "light" battalions? Did they
do any skirmishing like the lights of the British battalions? Or were they indistinguishable
from the line companies?
