Michael told me the 'volcanoes' on the flag of infantry regiment Vastmanland are not volcanoes. They represent the fire of foundries or smelters in the region which was known for iron work. Although the flag appears yellow its field is of course white.

Needless to say the detail will be passed to Mr Clarence Harrison who will in time I suspect produce some new flags for your delectation!
|Russian Infantry flag|
|Camp marker pennon Danish Garden til Fods|
This flag appears to have been lifted from a camp of the Danish Foot Guards. It would have marked the battalion's camp position.
|Russian cavalry pennant|
