A very Napoleon afternoon.
I ticked a few things off the bucket list last November, one of which was a visit to Les Invalides, Paris. Tip 1- take a spare battery for your camera. Mine fizzed out just as I was getting to the Napoleonic section, forcing me to return two days later (curses!). What an incredible place it is.
Tip 2- allow at least 1 full day, the wife won't mind.
French Dragoon. Judging by the facings I would say he is from the 23rd regiment.
Cuirassier cuirass and helmet. Sapper armour in the background.
Dragoon habit. Love the less faded cloth where his belts were.
A date with the Emperor's daughter. We kissed.
Line infantry officers habit
Needs no introduction.
It all depends on that article there...
