Right half. Note the guy in the red jacket, the trumpeter, and the artillery piece I believe is an "unicorn" a russian secret weapon, a canon-howitzer of conical bore.

And the last one, melee between the Russian and Saxon cuirassiers of their respective Guards. Hope you enjoyed, and give me reputation if so.

I think the cipher in the sabraque is that of Alexander. And they are charging alongside the Russian cuirassiers so I believe they are Russian dragoons.

In my opinion on this picture we can see the Wuerttembergian grenadiers defending vs russian cuirassiers. And here are also Wuerttembergian dragoons, one of them seek protection between his comrades. von Juntz - this cypher isn't A like Alexander, it is F and R. The King of Wuerttemberg in this times was Friedriech II. Otherwise, look on this dragoon's helmet, this sign is the same as on the helmets of grenadiers.

Thank you for the clarification, now that you point it out is obvious, I shouldn't drink and post Wüttemberg troops are quite obscure a subject, and I just couldn't figure out, I thought they were riding along the Russian cuirassiers! it just shows how confusing a battle can be!

Only one reputation point received! for these pics!?? After all that work!!? Oh, the ingratitude!

Correct - see attached Wurttemberg 2nd Cavalry Rgt 1811-12.

Not my fault, the forum won't allow me to give you another 'Rep' until I share some around.

Weird system!

The gentlemen with the yellow collars and shabraques are Saxon von Zastrow Cuirassiers.
