        I've absolutely no idea, I know that sounds daft but I've been collecting these on my computor for years but not recorded the source and I just can't remember.(It's a Cyprus thing, the sun & the odd drink tends to addle the brain!)

        If it comes back to me I will post it.

            Hi Gerry.

            You will have to join this Russian site:- biblioteka.cc/forum/61-militarija/ (frustrating as I cannot post a proper link because I don't have enough posts) and then scan to page 3. This site also has Bucquoy, Funcken, Joineau, Rousselot, Knotel, Bueno etc plus lots on WW2, and some very good Russian books....
            Regards

                reenactors really don't look the part. You can get picky about uniform, drill etc...but it ain't what you wear it's the way that you wear it. Plus, too many fat and too many old blokes. I imagine the period to be very different to how it looks at these things. However, i recently found this pic online and i have to say, this geezer looks the bee's knees as far as i'm concerned. It was tagged on facebook as a friend of mine who's actually an officer of light infantry. The tag was removed so i'm not sure but congrats to martin if it is you. Stance, bearing, kit - could have come out of a detaille painting. Magnifique!


                Gal. Compans,this galant officier is jean francois rémy-neris, he is a captain in the 10e of the chasseur acheval de la garde. He is often on waterloo and other main events. He lives in paris.

                  I live just 15km from the place where the prussians under Bluecher crossed the Rhine-its really great to imagine how the crossed there.

                  I saw the bonnet on ebay and was lucky to get it.

                  On the pics 2 of my garde de bataille, the luxury version unmarked, the plaine marked "Man. nationale de St´etienne".
                  For comparision my english M1796HC marked

                  Hi Pete,

                  I don't think it's a authentic orginal bonnet, probably a early repro of the beginning of 20-th century. I collect French napoleonic sabres to. Why is the garde bataille's blade strangly cleaned on the last part of blade? are there engravings on the upper part?

                  Best Marc
