  • There's no such thing as a daft question.....

    Though this one might come mighty close...
    I've just gormed how to post piccies, but they're enormous images, how do I make 'em a tad smaller?
    Remember, I'm not the quickest on the uptake, so anyone kind enough to reply must use be familiar with the KISS principle!

    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.

        The site has been a type of source for me in the past, but mainly for works other than Napoleonic though I have browsed through and downloaded the Pierre Conrad plates out of curiosity to see if it included the original beautifully illustrated title plate, which it and other dowloadable files on other sites seem to omit from this excellent series of plates, so I will post it here. (I do believe I may have posed it on this site a couple of years ago)



        Sorry about the scan quality as the plate is too large to lay flat on the glass.

        And many a blessing know to stew
        To make a megloamaniac bright;
        Give honour to the dainty Corse,

                    When you buy the plates from Le Cimier, you should get the title plate with set Numbers.1 to 4: Les Hussards.


                    When I get the time I will try to post a better rendition.

                        • These are Le Cimier plates.
                          Does somebody have the texts of Pierre Troterau that accompany to the designs?

                          Referring to the units of Jose I there are many doubts on his real uniforms I will look for a very good article (in French sorry) on the subject

                                It seems to me that there is an error in the list according to my data would be
                                1.- Infantry of line - Officer - Reg. Granada
                                2.- Infantry of line - Grenadier - Reg. Malaga
