Standard Bearers bore a heavy duty to protect the flag against capture at all costs. They often gave their lives to prevent enemies for taking these prizes away from their comrades. Any soldier that captured enemy flags usually was well rewarded by their superiors, including gaining battlefield promotions.
This mould will allow you to cast the standard bearer and the partly folded flag. Due to the extra metal needed to fill the flag you may get less figures than normal per ingot, perhaps 3 or 4 instead of the normal 5.
The battle of Rossbach was fought on November 5th 1757 between the Prussian army of Frederick the Great and the combined armies of France and the German Empire under Soubize.
When the allied commanders noticed the Prussians moving back from their previous positions to behind a hill they mistakenly believed thy were retreating even before the battle begun and recklessly advanced to overtake and destroy them. The Prussians realising the allies error, prepared their cavalry and artillery just out of sight of the allies over the hill crest. As the Franco-German army surged up the hill, they were suddenly met by the Prussian cavalry at full gallop and the roar of artillery fire, which threw them into disarray. Despite valiant attempts by the French cavalry to halt the now advancing Prussian infantry and rank their own troops, the battle was lost and Prussia won the day.
