        I always thought the naval uniforms worn by Napoleonic Royal Naval officers looked very smart.



        As were the Royal horse artillery.

          I agree with mike. And even though the sailors were not all about niceties they could still clean up good.

              I like pretty much all of the light cavalry uniforms -- dashing and colorful and completely impractical.



              Here's a light cavalry uniform that works* -- Cossacks!

                        Say what one will about the Napoleonic Wars, they still have some of the most beautiful uniforms in history! Such pageantry, such form, such colors!

                        Great pics!

                              If I wanted to buy just one book on uniforms for this era, which one should I make top of my list?

                                The single bestest two books....

                                Military Dress of the Peninsula War by Martin Windrow and Gerry Embleton

                                1815 The Armies at Waterloo by Ugo Pericoli

                                For the best uniform guide for the era you'd need a two volume set...

                                Arms and Uniforms: The Napoleonic Wars by Liliane and Fred Funcken

                                The long toll of the brave
                                Is not lost in darkness
                                Over the fruitful earth
                                And athwart the seas
                                Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                                Unquenchable forever.
