          Or with a bauble or medal
          Can win mans heart for you;
          And many a blessing know to stew
          To make a megloamaniac bright;
          Give honour to the dainty Corse,

              I cannot agree with you, the 1804 flag was distributed 1 for each squadron until 1808 when Napoleon decided to leave a single flag for regiment.
              all the 1804 model had the same design and attributes.
              square with colored corner, NO fringes, No tie on the pole.

              on the front side l'empereur Napoleon au rgt....
              on the other side valeur et discipline etc.
              NO battle honours in 1804 model

              for the carabinier the flag was the same distributed before the cuirass, they changed the fag in 1812 getting the vertical strip flag with battle honour on the reverse
              In that case Lilianne and Fred Funken are wrong in is 1st volume of 1ere Empire

              • Wouldn't be the first time the Funkens had made a glaring error . . .

                  yes, they were wrong...
                  they weren't the only one wrong ... have a look at the attached painting


                  episode dated 1807 , when a small crown was added to the flags.

                  I think you know the painter...

                    • I their time the Funken books were the dog's danglies for kids painting their first Napoleonic figures. These days they're a bit dated, but no worse than some of the current Osprey guides.
                      The long toll of the brave
                      Is not lost in darkness
                      Over the fruitful earth
                      And athwart the seas
                      Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                      Unquenchable forever.

                        • Goodmorning, is there someone who knows somthing about the uniform of the unit named "Chasseurs des Alps"? it would be part of the french "Army of the Alps" (Armée des Alpes) during revolutionary period (1792-1797). I can't find anything about their uniform, I only heard they worn a green habit and maybe a "mirliton" hat.
                          Thank you everybody for any information!

                          • I've also read this particular note: << the general Dumas had the idea to equip with crampons and woody soles the soldiers of year II, by creating the unit of the “chasseurs de la montagne” >>
                            Is it true? where can I find some other informations?
                            Thanks!

                            • If you read french:

                              "Campagne dans les Alpes pendant la Révolution":


                              http://archive.org/stream/campagnesd...2kreb_djvu.txt

                              The General Dumas did great work for the Army of the Alpes:

                              jeunes gens de la première réquisition, l'armée des Alpes
                              conservait, à la fin de décembre 1793, un effectif de
                              47,000 hommes, dont le plus grand nombre, à peine armé,
                              n'était ni instruit, ni habillé, ni équipé. De cette masse de
                              citoyens plus ou moins enthousiastes, conduits par des
                              officiers absolument ignorants du métier militaire, il fallait
                              faire des soldats. Telle était la tâche ardue qui s'imposait
                              au général Dumas, au moment où il arrivait à Grenoble,
                              le 21 janvier 1794 1 . Quelques jours après, il est rejoint par
                              le représentant du peuple Gaston, envoyé de l'armée des
                              Pyrénées-Orientales à celle des Alpes, à la place de son
                              collègue Fabre, décédé 2 . Peu à peu ces deux hommes
                              actifs et énergiques remettent de l'ordre dans les corps
                              de troupes et les différents services 3 .

                              [...]
                              1794 :le général Sarret avait donné de minutieuses instructions, en vue d'attirer
                              l'attention de l'ennemi par une démonstration sur le front
                              des retranchements du grand mont Cenis, tandis que deux
                              détachements, dirigés sur les deux flancs, prendraient à
                              revers leurs défenseurs, ainsi que ceux du petit mont
                              Cenis et se réuniraient vers Grand'Croix, au-delà du lac 3 .
                              Dès la fin de mars, les troupes étaient prêtes, pourvues de
                              chaussons de laine et de crampons en fer


                              [...]
                              général Dumas, les 3, 12, 25 et 27 mars. — Les troupes ne doivent porter les souliers que
                              pour exécuter des opérations; en garnison, elles auront des sabots.

                              [...]
                              En outre, les officiers
                              et soldats étaient munis d'une sorte de guide des Alpes, que le général Dumas avait fait
                              extraire d'un mémoire très complet rédigé par le maréchal de camp de la Blottière, qui
                              avait fait, comme ingénieur, les campagnes des guerres pour la Ligue d'Augsbourg et la
                              Succession d'Espagne.
                              According to his famous son:

                              http://www.dumaspere.com/pages/bibli...p?lid=m3&cid=4

                              [...] des hommes habitués depuis un an à cette guerre de montagnes et qui n'avaient jamais reculé que devant l'impossible ; maintenant, c'était l'impossible qu'il fallait vaincre : il fallait que les soldats passassent là où jamais montagnard n'avait passé ; il fallait que le pied de l'homme foulât une neige qui ne connaissait encore que le sabot du chamois ou la serre de l'aigle.
                              Mon père fit faire trois mille crampons de fer qu'il distribua à ses soldats et avec lesquels ils s'étudièrent à passer dans les endroits les plus difficiles.
