Composition of the Russian army,
The Russian army in 1757 comprised three different types of Infantry: Grenadiers, Musketeers and Observation corps.
There were 46 musketeer regiments and 4 of Grenadiers. Each musketeer regiment was made up of three battalions and three grenadier companies, though by the end of 1757 the regiments were re-organised into two battalions each and two grenadier companies.
Each battalion comprised four companies and each of these had a paper strength of 160 officers and men.
In the field, as with other European armies of the time, the grenadier companies from various regiments were merged together to form grenadier battalions.
Grenadiers in winter uniform were distinguished from the musketeers not only by the distinctive Russian mitre cap but also by the cartouche box worn on the waist belt, over the buckle.
