Ottoman Army circa 1812

For those with an interest in the Ottoman Army : "Military Costume of Turkey" is downloadable as a pdf from google books. This is the book the uniformology set of plates is based on & this also has the accompanying text: http://books.google.co.uk/books/abou...AJ&redir_esc=y

The translation for the caption of number 7 is: Battalion commander's trumpeter.' Literally, it translates as 'trumpeter to the chef de bataillon' (to use the French term for battalion commander).

I haven't seen a depiction of a mounted trumpeter for the Battalion de Neuchatel before, and I don't believe there was one on the table of organization. My first reaction was that he would be from the combined artillery/engineer company and belong to the company's train troops, but in 1813 that company was not reactivated after Russia.

The usual musicians for the battalion were drummers, as it was an infantry battalion.

I'll translate the other captions for you later.

Sincerely,
M

For the remaining 6 I'm going to paraphrase instead of literally translate, if that is all right with you.

1-Officer in walking out dress.

2-sapeur d'infanterie.

3-Battalion drum major in regulation 1813 uniform. I have no idea if this uniform was worn by the battalion in 1813.

4-Carabinier captain. I tend to doubt that those type of boots would be worn and as the battalion was a line battalion, this should read grenadier instead of carabinier. There are some sources, though, such as this one, that say carabinier.

5-Artillery company drummer.

6-Sapeur du genie from the combined artillery/engineer company.

Sincerely,
M
