  • The Carabinier cuirass was made of beaten iron, embellished with brass studs and covered almost entirely with brass, as was the helmet. The officers had their helmet and Cuirass embellished with copper.

    See: Rousselot Planche #2 Carabiniers 1810-1815.

    ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
    All human ills he can subdue,
    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,
    The Pixie is a little shite.

    • Here you go! The info.

      I have abridged the relevant passages.

                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.

                Thanks for the info, Pierre. Yes, the uniform of that General of light cavalry is marvelous!

                  • Blues helmet

                    I did some work at the Household Cavalry museum (I was a spare bod in HQ Sqn.)when it was still at Combermere BKs in Windsor. The Blues helmet above is unbelievable small, I would even say child sized. It is possible that it survived so well intact because it belonged to a boy Cornet. I also made a copy of it for a re-enactment unit some years ago so I took lots of measurements.

                        • Good evening everyone,

                          I'm looking to create an army of Hesse-Kassel for my army of lead soldiers.
                          I search documents on the regiments of the Hesse-Kassel between 1813 and 1814.
                          Images, links or references would be welcome.
                          The images of Peter BUNDE are wonderful, but too expensive for my poor purse.

                          Thanks for your help.

                          Didier.
