Organisation during the Hundred Days Campaign
The 7th Dutch Militia were one of five battalions in Luitenant Kolonel Willem
Frederik Graaf (Count) Van Bijlands (pictured above) 1st brigade of
the Second Division commanded by Lt Gen. Baron Henri-Georges Perponcher-Sedinitzky.
The Brigade consisted of
27th Jaeger Battalion
7th Dutch Line Battalion
5th Dutch Militia

8th Dutch Militia
One of the most exciting parts
of our research has been finding out that the first three units in Bylands Brigade have already been recreated whilst the
8th has been heavily researched.
The 7th Dutch Militia
was commanded by Lt Col Singendonck and entered the hundred days campaign with a total of 22 officers and 622 other ranks
giving a total of 644.
