Napoleonic French Infantry Uniform Buttons

Postby Dixie » Wed Feb 18, 2009 11:52 pm

Perhaps rather a dull subject for some, however I am looking to get as many examples as possible. In perticular I am looking for the sizes of both the small and large button.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

They have some on http://www.re-enactmentshop.com/p_napoleonic.htm#Buttons complete with dimensions if that helps?


Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

If you can get hold of Louis Fallou's Le bouton d'uniforme francais it will have all the info you desire. Give me a specific unit and year and I'll look it up for you.

My pleasure. And I really am going to finish that Highland coy article soon, honest! The latest derailer has been a J Leach reference to an Irish piper that I just need to follow up..

Lacking a little cash to do all the proper research I want to this season. New uniform, couple of pistols, oh and a baby on the way!

Congratulations! A little Rifleman? Or perhaps a little fusilier.. Remember, the baby goes in the hoster and the pistols in the cot. Or is it the other way around.

Have you tried Jon Anastasio of the 9th?
