Below you will find
some items from the Napoleonic Wars,
One Shako is
post the period by about 1 to 8 years , but I included it to show the type of wool plumes that were
common during the Napoleonic period .
The Lancer headgear
is interesting as it still has the original red wool plume for O/R.
The other head gear
below shows the other material used on helmets....
The German Headgear
shows the thin material used for the plume.....very interesting
The British bayonet
belt plates give a good idea on what they looked like.....
If you need more information
