French Napoleonic Pontoniers Uniform/Equipment Help please?

Post by Atheling » Thu Apr 09, 2015 12:58 pm

Hi,

I'm a bit stuck for a couple of uniform questions and the colour of the actual ponts.

If anyone is able to help with any of these uniform/equipment questions that would be a fantastic help to me. And of course be very much appreciated!

I've enclosed some pics and what I wanted to know was what uniforms would the guys I've circled be wearing?

And, would the whole of the pontoon boat be painted French Artillery Green or would the metal sides have been left as - metal?

Here are the pics:

Was their uniform really this sky blue?

Equipment- planks etc? Were they Artillery Green pre-fabrications?

Metal sides of ponts, were they artillery green or just left as care metal? If so, what sort of metal?

Thanks, hopefully someone in the know can help me out :)

Darrell.

I was drafting a response, but saw that you've received far better advice than I could have given elsewhere :lol:
