      Sorry, I had to post them as I got them. your lucky that I no longer have my postcard collection, amongst them I had hundreds pertaining to the Napoleonic war, but sold them to my brother about ten years ago. Mind you, I'm going to complete my Rousselot collection this year, so 'watch this space. (there will be no need to thank me, I will take it as said)

      Thank you very much for you rep it is most appreciated.

      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.

          • Seems to be Murat. It's his fashion style.

                    I thought it was only Murat who had the Leopard skin saddle? Look at those green boots, oh I bet it was hell getting the mud stains out of them

                          Looks more like a tiger skin saddle. But keeping the boots clean must have been hell.

                          • Murat. Take a look at czapka on his head and tiger skin.

                              • the person in 024.jpg is indeed Murat
                                he was also the duke of berg
                                here are some uniforms of that garde
                                these pics are of the lancers of berg
                                the green ubiform is the same unit but a later date
