    Hi Paul,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I can see why my query would lead you to think dragoons...

    I was referring to the Bucquoy book on Napoleon's coronation, where a courier costume is featured.

    I have the Bucquoy books and in one of them, a courier in a green costume is represented. I am intrigued by the headress and are there any other pictures representing this costume, front and back? I am planning to do a model of this figure if possible.

    Thanks Dibs. I thought that would be the case but wasn't certain. Knew I could count on you!

I know that at this stage of the campaign they were still wearing the old style uniforms with laced jackets and bicornes but we're they wearing overalls, or breeches and long boots? And how were their hats worn? Side to side, or fore and aft? I've seen pictures of both!

    Bicorne: Fore and aft marching order. Port-starboard, Guard duty, review, walking out dress with officer wearing it in the 'French manner'. White Breeches/long boots full dress. overalls/half boots for marching order.

    I'll have a delve around some more and see what I can come up with. Give me a few days. (unless that is, someone else has the info, which isn't likely)
    I have been in touch with the HAC archivists and at the moment they assume that there was no facing colour so the collar & cuffs would be rifle green piped black. they said that they have passed my inquiry over to their uniform experts.

    You CorpusGuy, are responsible for getting me so intrigued about the HAC Yager, that I am now firmly on the path of finding out more about them myself and starting up a library on Yeomanry and Militia units of the period.

    Dear Mr B******,

    Thank you very much for your email of 22 April. You are correct in the rifle green and black mohair trim. There were no colour facings as far as I know. By copy of this email, I will ask my uniforms expert to reply properly to you…

    Yours sincerely,

    Justine Taylor

    Please Note:

    Though I am in correspondence with a gentleman who is making a statuette of a Yeager for the regiment and sending me 'privilaged' pictorial information, under a gentleman's agreement, I will only be able to post written information on uniform details via a pm.

    British Honorable Artillery Company Yager

    New here----- so if not doing this right please excuse.

    I am looking for information on the uniform of the Honorable Artillery Company Yager unit during the Napoleonic wars. I have a 54 mm figure which I would like to finish but only limited information on uniform;

    "dark green single breasted without skirts jacket, covered buttons, mohair cord(?), Trousers green with mohair down sides (?color), Austrian Knot in front (?color), and cap was black beaver (?black I assure). Any facing colors? or lace? Like a Baker rifle? Were they in any action or just a home unit?

    Thank You for the search, Paul!
    I expected there is nothing of the art of the 3rd DGs in the Peninsula, but I was hoping that it is. I hope the modern artists will not forget the 3rd DGs and the Peninsula War.
    I found the picture of Norie Orlando (I was mistaken in the name of artist) of the 6th DGs in the Peninsula in a large resolution on the site:
    http://www.1812db.simvolika.org/?act...=5581&cursor=0



    I found the picture of the 3rd dragoon guards officer (a few years before the war in the Peninsula)

    Sincerely,
    Paul
