The Organization and Number of Troops in New France
Karrer's Swiss Regiment
Caption: Régiment suisse de Karrer
Unlike the French troops in the colony, the detachment from Karrer's Swiss Regiment sometimes slightly exceeded its official number of troops. For example, instead of having 150 men at Louisbourg in the autumn of 1743, it had 165. On the eve of the siege of 1745, the detachment was only seven soldiers short.
