    Russian Commander uniforms

    Allo,
    Wes thu hal,
    May someone provide a source of Russian command uniforms, that range from regiment commanders to division commanders.

    French ones would also be appreciated.

    Also, was it common for cavalry brigade commanders to way the same uniform of a regiment, similar to how general cardigan of the light brigade at the battle of balaclava wore a hussar uniform. Was this same for the Napoleonic wars?

    Thanks in advance,
    Maeg dryhten beof mid geo eal!

    almost all the information was bombed away when the Netherlands were attacked in the second world war
    the place were the information was stored was also a army depot this made it a target for German bombers

    Vague similarities to the uniform of the Kingdom of Holland Guard Cuirassiers but can't find any reference to the white bearskin in either this regiment or the Imperial Guard Dragoons.

    By Waterloo, French line infantry units 'where the uniform was issued' were pretty much the same, though the types of trousers would vary. As shown on the Cent Joures site posted above.

    Be aware though that that site should be used with caution.






    I only have the text to the above plates in French I'm afraid.

    Regarding uniforms of the French Line Infantry at Waterloo

    I am gathering information to start my first 28mm wargame army. I Am Starting with Sir Thomas Picton Division and Information has been fairly easy to come by so far. With the French I am starting with I Corps, 28th, 105th, 54th,55th ect. Line infantry and would like to know how each (Regt) was different to each other? Was it merely a different number on their shako etc. Different facing colours? Any Help in Pointing a novice in the right direction will be appreciated.

    Maybe cause I'm Canadian, but what the heck does that mean ??
    It's Old Army (US) for 1st Sergeant.

    There is another excellent book by Colonel Elting, A Dictionary of Soldier Talk which I highly recommend.

    It's enlightening to say the least.

    There is nothing wrong or incorrect with the author's wording. In plain language, it's 'soldier talk' from an American army officer of long standing who was also a military history instructor/professor for 11 years at West Point.

    The illustrations are from his own collection that he used to illustrate his lessons on the Napoleonic period for his students and all are by Herbert Knotel.

    I was fortunate to see the originals in the binders that he put them in as a collection in his study at home.

    There were also about 13 large Knotel watercolors that were framed in the colonel's home and I was fortunate enough to have been left two of them for my own collection after the colonel passed away in 2000. His wife gave them to me as we had been good friends for over ten years.

    The collection, I believe, was left to the West Point Museum.

    The four uniform books, with the captions written by the colonel, were the last installment on his Napoleonic trilogy, the first two volumes being his operational study of the wars, A Military History and Atlas of the Napoleonic Wars (which I believe to be much superior to Chandler's Campaigns of Napoleon which was published two years after the Atlas) and Swords Around A Throne, the organizational study of the Grande Armee which includes material not published in English before and was the result of 30 years of research.

    I have found all three to be indispensable in the study of the Grande Armee.
