The 45th Regiment of Foot was one of the British units involved in the retaking of St. John's, Newfoundland after its capture by a French fleet in June 1762. Earlier in the war, the regiment took part in the capture of Fort Beausejour (1755) and the siege of Louisbourg (1758). The smaller figures in the background include a sergeant (at left, holding a halberd) and a grenadier (wearing a mitre cap, at right). Reconstruction by Charles Stadden. (Parks Canada)
This image was also shown at Ft. Edward, National Historic site in Windsor, Nova Scotia back in the 1980s. I have one full battalion modeled which is in previous posts.
