Guard of the Witt



Yesterday we talked about William III's guard but it is not quite known that from early 1672 Cornelis de Witt, also had a guard of 50 men, dressed in red coats with yellow lining.

They are depicted here on a "schoolplate". There are other sources like papers who describe them as well, but my source is HSL V, p.314 esp. note 24.
