Colonel Demid Mesheryakov

Colonel Demid Mesheryakov took command of the second brigade when his regiment, the Selenginsk, was transferred to 3rd Division. He was wounded at Borodino and succeeded by Major Vasily Bogdanovich of the same regiment.



2nd Brigade seemingly suffered heavy casualties on 7 September with both regimental commanding officers falling wounded and two battalion commanders put out of battle, one killed and the other wounded. By the end of the day, 1st Battalion of the Selenginsk Infantry Regiment was being led by a Lieutenant.

In this composition, the mounted officer, representing Colonel Mesheryakov, is by Perry Miniatures, whilst his dismounted companion, Major Bogdanovich is from Wargames Foundry.

    1. Thank you - hopefully the twins will get around to doing some mounted generals in due course.
