Regiment de Guyenne

We had a comment from someone recreating this regiment in the UK so I thought I'd post this really great painting fom 1757. On their webpage it says
After initial garrison duty at Fort Frontenac, the battalion fought in most of the major actions of the war, including the victories at Fort William Henry and Fort Carillon, and the defeat at Quebec. They remained with the field army until the final surrender at Montreal, whereupon the bulk of the survivors returned to Europe and were incorporated into the regiment’s 1er – now only – battalion
