43788RE: 1812 Belgic and Stovepipe
- May 9, 2011This discussion has left me wondering..
When the 4th took part in the Chesapeake campaign, and later the New Orleans
campaign, does anyone know what the light company would have worn? Belgic
shakos for sure but would they have worn regimental plates, or bugles, and
would the cockade badge have been bugles or a regimental button?
And then later at Waterloo, would the hat be the same?
I've made lots of assumptions (as we put together our impression) but
"assuming" has its risks.
