The French have been elusive, not making much contact in the past few days.
Now, just as the Russians are sent out to learn more a series of French & Italian squadrons are pushing back from the west, to learn of what Blücher has been doing in Lubben ...
The first match:
Troopers of the 2nd Italian Chasseurs à Cheval Regiment clashed first with the Alexandria Hussars
|troopers of 2nd Italian Chasseurs à Cheval Regiment|
|the mix-up involved more than 1/2 of both forces, with the Italian Chasseurs arriving en masse|
|When the smoke cleared, on e trooper of the 2nd Italian Chasseurs à Cheval remained|
The French 14th Hussar Regiment were also partly deployed into the region and now clashed with the Alexandria Hussars.
|two Alexandria Hussars held off all comers in a narrow space between two woods lines|
When the smoke cleared, there were two troopers of the Alexandria Hussars that could claim victory!
Russians WIN match two.
Continuing with the 14th Hussar Regiment, more French troopers clashed with the Alexandria Hussars.
This time the Coronet of the Alexandria Hussars rang his horn many times to call in the somewhat distributed troopers, this also called in the 14th Hussar troopers. In a fast flashing of sabres, with a few pistol shots, the Coronet was felled along with the troop commander and the rest of the troopers, the 14th Hussars departed the field with three troopers.
