Sorry Zouave! I forgot to post this about Edwards

Edwards had already been in the Life Guards for seven (7) years, having joined as a boy musician and only four feet tall (1.2192 metres); he never grew above five feet six inches (1.6764 metres). He served on until 1841, and when he retired kept his trumpet with him. On his death it was donated to the Household Cavalry Museum where it still hangs. His son also joined the Life Guards at the ripe old age of ten, in 1832.

Thanks, mate.

No more battles for Germain Mathurin

1800's very detailed military leave for Germain Mathurin, French Hussard of the 1st regiment, due to wounds he received during the first Napoleon's Italian campaign: at the "Passage of the Brenta" (wounded in the eye by a battle axe) and at the "BATTLE OF CASTIGLIONE" after falling from his horse. Detailed information provided on both sides of the document. This is signed by several officers of the regiment including Chef de Brigade Joseph PICARD who was later promoted to General during the Empire. Also signed once by General of Division Jean Henri de FREGEVILLE, Marquis de Grandval.
Castiglione is only 20 km from my hometown and I am a collector of model figures representing Napoleonic Hussards. I would never have missed this document.

here's an interesting artifact...




The Historically Important Corunna Bicorn of Lt Gen Sir David Baird
We are pleased to offer the historically important General Officers bicorn and feather plume worn by Lt. Gen Sir David Baird at the battle of Corunna 1809.
The beaver skin felt bicorn is in very good condition and retains the large gold embroidered General Officers star to the right hand side terminating in a general officers button made by Charles Jennens. Both fore and aft tassels are missing. The leather sweat band with silk edging is present and has a maker’s label of JUPP. HATTER to the ROYAL FAMILY No. (?) Old Bond St., LONDON. A white over red feather plume on whalebone slides into a small leather strip just above the top of the embroidered star. Stylistically the bicorn is the correct pattern for the period being able to be flattened without damage as opposed to later period General Officers bicorn’s that were rigid shapes set with starch.
Joseph Jupp is listed in the 1802 London trade Directory as “Hatter to the Royal Family” at 7, Old Bond St. The following year he was shown as “Hatter to Her Majesties” at the same address. In 1805 he moved to 5, Old Bond St, and in 1808 was described as “Hatter to Their Majesties”. At some time between 1822 and 1830 he moved again to 22 Regent Street.
Provenance:
The bicorn and numerous other personal effects of Sir David Baird were loaned to the National War Museum of Scotland and showcased at Edinburgh Castle for almost one hundred years where the bicorn was always recorded as having been worn by Baird at Corunna.

And something else.



A Waterloo Period 32nd Foot Officers Uniform and Belgic Shako
The group comprises a Belgic shako complete with its gold and crimson plaited festoon, a black rosette supporting a regimental button and a universal pattern GR helmet plate. The cap is made from very fine high quality felt which has been bonded to a rigid base material to form the overall shape of the cap. The cap has a soft pile which is virtually impossible to replicate today as this quality of felt is no longer produced. Whilst in good condition the cap does show signs of wear. The rear of the crown has a split which has allowed the felt to come away from the backing material. There is also a small wear point on the crown of the cap neither of which detract from the overall appearance of a very rare cap. The interior is complete with a leather sweat band and the cap is lined in crimson waxed cotton. A stout leather peak extends fowards from the cap. The belgic or so called “Waterloo” shako was never fitted with chin scales or a leather strap.
The scarlet coatee has white facings and retains 37 regimental buttons depicting a crown above a circular pattern strap with the Arabic numeral of 32 inside all in a raised style. The buttons are set in two’s on the front of the coatee and the collar is the correct cut away pattern associated with pre 1816 coatee’s. The skirt tail ornaments are simple embroidered knot devices normally found with this pattern of coatee.
Also included is a pair of associated contemporary fringe bullion winged epaulettes in gold lace with a red cloth edging. The reverse is lined in white cloth with yellow silk cushions supporting the hanging bullions.
A good condition netted crimson silk sash which wraps completely around the body two times and terminates in tassels completes the group.
A once in a life time opportunity to own a possibly unique example of a Waterloo period officers uniform to the 32nd or Cornwall Regiment of Foot whose officer`s sustained over 65% killed or wounded at Waterloo.
£15,000.00

Last surviving Trafalgar flag

Quote:
The only surviving Union Jack to have been flown by the Royal Navy at the Battle of Trafalgar has been discovered in a drawer. The flag was flown from the jackstaff of HMS Spartiate, one of Nelson’s warships, as the battle against the French navy raged 204 years ago this month.

Last surviving Trafalgar flag expected to fetch £15,000 at auction - Times Online

I don't think this is the last surviving Union flag, as i am sure HMS Minotaur's is still around somewhere.

Me too. I made by fax a faint offer for an hussar's sabre. It was knocked down at the double of my offer...

Sir John Soane's Museum in London and independent charity The Art Fund today announce the return of a lost treasure to the Museum - a gold mourning ring containing a lock of Napoleon's hair, one of Sir John Soane's prized possessions.
Quote:

This acquisition is a triumph for the Museum, which was unable to acquire the ring at a London auction in June.
