How did light battalions like the 43rd or 52nd work. This is in the real world now, not game mechanics. They had ten companies like an ordinary line battalion would but were all the companies, effectively light companies? Would they still have had a grenadier company?
In battle would they have fought in line with the tenth company, the light company in loose or skirmish order like a line battalion would do?
Or was it just that they all had the training to fight as skirmishers whereas in an ordinary line battalion only the light co would?
Also, a painting question. Looking to get some of those lovely new Victrix Cacadores. Would the officers have had red sashes like the British officers. Couldn't find any pictures of officers as a reference.
