    I am still learning a lot about the history of Napoleonic infantry and the army command and structure.  However after purchasing the late war command figures for the British and French commands I am a little perplexed as to what each figure represents.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    British Command

    My current understanding is that #1 is the Sergeant, #2 and #4 are the regimental and Royal color bearers, #4 is the drummer/fife player and #3 is a Colonel/Lt. Colonel.

    French Command

    My current understanding is that #2 would represent the Colonel/Lt Colonel for the regiment, #6 is the drummer, and #5 is the regimental color bearer

    On the first row number 6 is a pioneer. I think only the French used them

    Hmmm…looks like the British also used them (according to some bloke on the internet :p)  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pioneer_(military)

    Thanks for the info! I had a feeling that they were either a grenadier or engineer of sorts.  It really is neat learning about the history of Napoleonic warfare.
