This unit is made up using Alberken/Minfig 20mm figures.
The 5th was originally the Navarre Regiment in the old Royal Army and I choose this unit for its role in the 100 days campaign and the scene in the film Waterloo.
The elite companies are a rather nice figure. The previous owner had chopped the plume down to make a pom pom.
Inspired by WM flags I had a go at a making a flag using an old Coke can. I found it easy to cut using a pair of scissors and the metal is thin enough to bend an fold without any problems. Painting is not too difficult although I had to do embroidery twice after my first attempt ended up with the letters too large.
The 5th Regiment only had one battle honour - Wagram. This made it a easier to paint this side of the flag.
