Foot artillery lieutenant in winter service uniform (denoted by dark blue trousers). The uniform is of 1805, with a large bicorne. Note the grenade embroidered on the collar of his uniform. Artillery soldier in campaign dress. Note the wide-brimmed hat topped by a plume. This officer belongs to the horse artillery. So, while his uniform is along the general lines of the foot artillery lieutenant, it has some touches of his branch, such as cazadore shako, silver lace, cavalry boots and very short tails. The sword seems to be the same type in both cases.
