Thank you! I most certainly will send a reminder notice.

I was wrong on the Fusilier Regiment. I did a bit more research and found that the Fusilier Regiment referred to a soldier who was in the infantry.

"Fusilier was originally the name of a soldier armed with a light flintlock musket called the fusil. The word was first used around 1680, and has later developed into a regimental designation."

Thank you again - I sincerely appreciate it.
