Dutch drill=French drill. They just copied the French drill - as wel as French ranks and batallion organisation.

Olafson has convinved me to come to Loevestein. I need to discuss it with my familt first because we were planning a trip, but I don't think that it will be a problem.

Honestly Riddlez, if you made up your mind about wanting to do a re-enactment, Loevestein might be the best option. It's a great location, you'll be fully clothed, probably a battle and a skirmish or two. And you'll get to meet Olafson and me, of course!

I can only say that truly the best way of seeing if you like reenactment, is to just go and do it for once. You'll quickly learn if this if you or not. It's how I got into it. And Loevestein as an event is perfect, it is not too large, not too stressed and it's a beautifull location.

Yeah well, practically every "minor" state of the time used the same regulations, just translated it to their own language. But it is hard to find online. I was searching for the American drill book on this (because it is in english) but could not find it.
For example, I have a physical copy of it for the westphalian regiments, which is obviously in german. But it also has the original commands in french. Much easier to understand that way.

It's a discussion we had in our unit for a while: should we do commands in French or in Dutch? We eventually decided on Dutch, because despite the Netherlands being basically a satelite state of France, their own Dutch identity was still very much a thing in that era. A plus was that it was easier as well.
