              We are not now that strength which in old days
              Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
              Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
              To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                  • Marvelous pictures Zouave!

                    I visited l'Empéri some years ago and I never forgot the uniform of that general of a light cavalry brigade. The most beautiful piece of that museum in my view.

                    regarding the officer of the lancers, that kind of red looks darker than scarlet (regimental colour of 1st chevau-léger). So he is from the 6th, not from the 1st regt, whose regimental colour is madder red.

                        but in this countercharge took part the lancers of Gobrecht's brigade, not a regiment of Sourd.

                              • Ladies and Gentlemen of the forum:
                                Here is a picture of an officer of the HorseGuards, 1815 by Laurence Keeble. I recieved it today on the cover of Tradition Magazine (the English one!) "9. To me, it is hugely important, since it explains the rather odd uniform shown in Haythornthwaite's Uniforms of Waterloo, and opens up an examination of what the Horse Guards actually wore at Waterloo.
                                I wrote it up, with illustrations, for my own pleasure and information, and wonder if a somewhat shortened version, three or four pics and about 250m words, would be of interest to members.
                                We tend, in this excellent thread, to enjoy the often beautiful pics that are presented, without any reference to their accuracy or significance, and this may be all that is required of them. Whether or not I commence looking at various items of British, Napoleonic regimental dress will depend entirely on your interest in the subject or lack thereof. Please let me know your opinion; I shall be guided by it.
                                Cheers,
                                Phil
                                They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
                                Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
                                At the going down of the sun and in the morning
                                We will remember them.

                                Rest easy.
