The 3rd Cazadores Battalion - "Wellington's Fighting Cocks"

Introduction

Welcome to the 3°Caçadores, otherwise known as the 3rd Cazadores or "Wellington's Fighting Cocks" (not to be takent the wrong way ... if get what i mean :wink:). This is a Light Infantry/Skirmisher Regiment
(Battalion actually) that serves under the Portuguese Flag. My goal is for it to be as much historically accurate as possible (that's why i said "the regiment serves under the Portuguese flag", if for any
reason you would get offended by that, please don't ), and that's why as soon as i can, i'll divide it into a few companies, (the one with the highest priority will be the "atiradores" one). Hope you like this thread !
