    French Carabiniers a Cheval

    Carabinier François Antoine Fraveau's cuirass. He fought in the 2nd Carabiniers a cheval and was killed at Waterloo...

    Wonder how the poor bugger met his end?
    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.

          • If I may, I would like to do a mega post of all the Jacques-Marie Gaston Onfray de Breville (JOB) pictures that I have on my computer, they include published pictures that were torn, had pieces missing, or badly marked by dirt, paint, etc, that I have 'repaired' and tidied up whilst not destroying or altering the integrity of the original; well, perhaps a tiny bit here and there...

            ‘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,

                  This one was rather battered, it is from a scene of a revolutionary army on the march to defend its borders. "I think!"

                              This burial party in Italy 1800, scene had parts of the foreground missing and tears and an almost a total shovel replacement in the left foreground (A pick was also depicted, but I erased it as all you could see of it was the spike end.)
