While the practice of combining companies of stouthearted grenadiers into independant battalions is to continue on an ad-hoc basis, those officers who can be periodically expected to command such battalions shall be promoted to a new rank, Oberstleutnant, and shall be entitled to a permanent Fahntraeger, with their own personal standard to be displayed when in such command, in order to provide a rally point for their grenadiers and to encourage esprit de corps.
In a celebratory march, the newly minted Oberstleutnants displayed their new Fahnen - visible nearest are the Wuppertal grenadiers, the Krup grenadiers, the Altenburg grenadiers, while leading the second column are the Alt-Knyphausen grenadiers, the Jung-Knyphausen grenadiers, and the Fahrenheit grenadiers.
A better view of the new flags:
The following day, the Graf von Krup issued a personal apology to the denizens of the Neumarkt suburb, and a solemn promise to rebuild the town hall, the church, the market, and recompense the proprietors of the Duck and Bill, and the Red Flag, for their losses. Rumours that Captain von Schloss has promised to marry the elder daughter of the proprietor of the Red Flag have been dismissed as "baseless, and besides he was drunk at the time"
* Not to mention losing 3 straight hands at the whist table to the Margrave of Wuppertal aka Minuet Moritz the Dance-master (to his friends).
