              • These pictures are amazing, nice to get a different theme from French heavy cavalry or the Imperial Guard. Especially like those of the Swiss guard and the Cazadores.

                          I think Picture No. 5 is a generic Light Infantry Picture, the No. 9 on the picture refers to the picture number not a Rgt number, and shows a Chasseur Drummer and a Carabinier. The Officer I think is also a Chasseur (Though I wouldn’t put money on it!)

                              The officer has a grenade badge just visible on his shako which would make him a Carabinier Officer. You are quite right about the regiment being a generic picture.
