Wurttemberg Garde zu Fuß Jægers?

Post by MePaintsGood2 » Fri Apr 25, 2014 10:36 pm

Anybody know what these guys look like? Haven't been able to find anything online. The three grenadier companies were in blue faced black & piped white and had bearskins with silver plates.
The fourth company (later expanded to a second "fusilier" battalion) was of jægers. The only uniform I see for these is the 1814 version which is the same as the grenadiers, but with white plumed shakos and green epaulettes. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Here You find well researched, beautifull color plates about troops of the Kingdom of Württemberg:

If you want to get details you cant find on the plates discription ask Dr. Bunde himself and he will help you as best he can.

I tell this from my own experience with him.

Hope that helps.

I'm not sure if it helps, but the uniform for the Guard Jaeger Company c.1813 is reproduced here - all be it mislabelled 'Fusilier' (1e): http://empire.histofig.com/Fusiliers-de-la-Garde.html
