Hi all. I wondered if anyone had any opinions on whether French Cavalry Standards had a Fleur de Lis with Cravattes (as the Infantry did) or a Spearpoint with Cravattes (as they did in the 7 Years War)? Thanks

Pierre Charrie in his Drapeaux et Etendards du Roi states that there were no regulations, and both types existed. Both had the cravattes, as you surmise.
