            As I said at the start of this post, I am sure some of these have been posted before but I wanted to keep them in the context of their units.

              ‘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,
              The Pixie is a little shite.

                  • Please tell me, from which regiment is this hussar? I thought about 4th hussars, according to the red pelisse, but I´m not sure. It should be a pic from battle of Austerlitz. If you can, tell me please

                      In my opinion they are chasseurs de la garde.

                        Nolendil is correct. Imperial Guard Chasseur a Cheval.

                        • Sirs,
                          It would be a tie between the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons and of course His Majesty's Fifth Regiment of Foot Old Corps . You have to be sharp to earn the nickname of Wellington's Bodyguard. I cannot imagine he would allow some ill attired unit to be his personal bodyguard.
                          Cheers!

                            My characters Rufus and Eugéne AKA two drummers of the 1st regiment of grenadiers of the Imperial Guard. (1804)

                            Qui a composé la chanson ?
                            C'est un tambour du bataillon.
                            Un soir d‘été, en battant la retraite,
                            Pensant à sa mie, que toujours il regrette.

                            • Very nice, Cath. Have you ever considered developing some short stories for those two characters?

                                Thank you, Zouave! ...and yes, there is a little one even for this picture
                                Rufus is an ordinary drummer of the Imperial Guard and Eugéne just a talented drummer boy...so Rufus teaches him and gives him some good advices like: "(...) and if you play it somehow wrong, don't worry, because the soldiers doesn't know anything about fine drum and others just don't listen..."

                                By the years Rufus begins to be envious when he sees that Eugéne is becoming much better than him, but his envy is ended in the begining of the Russian campaign, when he gets hit by a deviated shot. This is Eugéne's face when he sees him dying. It was a hard loss to him of course, they were fine mates.

                                Here is one more picture of them, waking up in barracks before playing La Diane to wake up everyone
