A draft of troops surplus to the requirements of the Bishopric of Uber Gruntshuffen arrived in the Duchy of Fenwick to join their army. Along with them came Reitter Karl von Ottenberg who had served with the dragoons and hoped that he might find adventure and advancement in the Duchy of Fenwick's army.
Reitter Karl was lucky, he submitted his credentials and was interviewed by the officer recruitment board which included the Duke himself. After a long discussion the board informed him that he would command either a regiment of infantry or dragoons in the Wittenberg Legion, his orders were to proceed to the muster camp, initially take charge of the artillery and await further orders.
Here we can see the Reitter mounted on his favourite horse (on the right of the picture) supervising an artillery drill.
At the port ....
