Flanker of a National Guard Battalion

Flanker of a National Guard battalion, print by Genty, made during the occupation of Paris (July 1815). The green and red epaulettes and plumes were stolen from a French magazine. On the British leatherwork, the plate is replaced by a buckle and has a large joint attached. Again, the bayonet belt is worn under the cartridge pouch belt.
