Militaria

This is the place to post pics of Napoleonic artifacts and antiques such as firearms, swords, flags, badges, insignia, military orders and decorations, etc.

Please, continue to post your uniform pics in the Best Uniform thread.

Standard of the Grenadiers a Cheval of the French Imperial Guard, 1st squadron.






Eagle of the Grenadiers a Cheval of the Imperial Guard, 1st squadron ( model 1804 ). This Eagle was carried in all the campaigns from 1805 to 1813, including the battle of Eylau ( see the painting ). It's the sole Imperial Guard eagle in existence today.








More on the way...
