I know it has been explained somewhere before, but what are the exact differences between the old, middle and young guard. The uniforms in the pictures of the middle guard at Waterloo and the old guard at Eylay look the same to me.

In 1815, even the newly formed 3rd and 4th Grenadier a Pied regiments and 3rd and 4th Chasseur a Pied regiments became Old Guard ( the bureaucrats in the Ministry of War called them Old Guard ). The entire army called them Middle Guard, although officially there was no Middle Guard.

The name Middle Guard cropped up not only due to the Fusilier-Grenadiers and Fusilier-Chasseurs not being reformed, but also because the manpower of these new regiments, while excellent, was somewhat substandard to the senior regiments ( Old Guard ), eg, retirees, men on furlough.

Theoretically, all four Grenadier regiments and all four Chasseur regiments should be wearing the same uniform. But...

At Ligny, the Prussians took the poorly clothed Middle Guard for second rate militia ( 3rd and 4th Grenadier regiments and 3rd and 4th Chasseur regiments ). Not 20 men could be found wearing the same uniform in any company in these regiments. That was before the Prussians had to retreat from them.

You are absolutely right. The uniforms look the same because they are the same. In both paintings, they appear wearing the infantry greatcoat ( also know as Capote ).

Keep in mind that the Middle Guard wore a different uniform in the previous campaigns/years.

As always very informative. I'm a little wiser now, however, it will take some time for me to process all of this information
