1798/9 Dutch uniforms?

Post by Keith T » Fri Feb 12, 2016 12:06 pm

Hope somebody can help me, I am doing both the British and French armys in the low countries 1798/99.

The British had Russian infantry as part of their army and the French had Dutch.[Batavian?]

Can anyone point me in the right direction for uniform details for the Dutch troops?

I am doing this in 28mm, Trent Miniatures and Front rank so far but any other manufaturers you would recomend

Hi Keith,

Yes, you have to look for Batavian Republic Troops. One source can be found here

another are the Brigade Plates of Dr. Peter Bunde

Hope that helps

Cheers,

The book on the Anglo-Russian campaign is "Voorwaarts Bataven" by Geert van Uythoven. (ISBN 9789028814271)

There's a new edition coming out in English. It includes a campaign and a uniform guide.

I have copies of the Genaart plates of 1802 (the same as the 1799 uniforms); if you mail me at jabru1-at-live.nl I will sent them to you
