From Designer Chris Ferree
comes this unique set of Flags for the Second Maratha War (1803-1804). As with Chris'
Sikh Wars Flag Collection, these are accurate and finely detailed reproductions of all Colors and Standards carried by the British and Honorable East India
Company, plus a wide representative selection of Maratha flags.
There are two British/HEIC Sets. The first provides all Colors and Standards carried by units under Sir Arthur Wellesley (the future
Duke of Wellington), and his second-in-command, General Stephenson, in the Southern Campaign against Scindia. The second set covers all units under the
command of General Lake in his northern campaign against Holkar.
The Maratha Sets are based on best evidence currently available about the size, patterns, and colors of this potent Native Army, largely trained,
officered, and led by such Europeans as Brigadier Pohlmann (whose personal flag is also included). While direct information about which flags may have been
associated with any specific Regular Infantry Battalion or Cavalry Regiment is lacking, Chris has provided a fair representation of the flags that could have
been carried by any of these.
As with our others lines, The 2nd Maratha War Flags are printed on 24-lb paper, in full color, and available in four popular war game scales:
25/28mm, 20mm, 15mm, and 6mm. Buyers need only indicate which scale they wish for each set when ordering.
All Flags sets retail for the same price whatever the scale, and while the number of flags in each varies, the price per flag runs around .50 Cents
each. However, as the number of Maratha Irregular units could be huge--the 6mm set of these contains a whopping 318 flags!
