  • I know it's a little later than the Napoleonic period, but does anyone know where I can find a picture of a British light dragoon lieutenant colonel at the time of 1830? I'm reading a novel by Allan Mallinson called words of command, great fiction by the way and the latest of a series. The main character is a lieutenant colonel of light dragoons. Would his uniform still be leaning on the napoleonic period or more towards the not to far in the future Victorian period?

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

                  Yes I know and I'm bloody annoyed.

                  Those pictures that this fault happens too are part of the folders that have been lost by Photobucket. I 'and many other users' had a torrid time trying to access our accounts, and even when we could, we couldn't down or upload anything. I finally managed to get my account back to 'sort of' normal but without three files and a loss of countless pictures in some of my other files....

                  I'll post another picture and see what happens.

                  • This one does show but does take a long time to appear.
                    Does that help??

                      Well! As long as the image can be accessed for downloading, then it's OK by me. The lag will have to be put up with unfortunately.

                      • I can see the images quite fine. And clicking the images takes me to the PhotoBucket page, and loads very quickly. Great images!

                            What hasn't improved is your unnatural love for redcoats.
