Reenacting the French in the Crimea
Let me introduce you to Eugene Gaponov from St Petersburg Russia. He and fellow club members are recreating the 18eme de ligne - voltigeurs - for the Crimea and are planning to take part in the Alma reenactment in September. It's a high quality project and Eugene has been very thorough finding original items and copying them as you can see from these photos.
What Mr Gaponov is looking for next is information about the capote from the 1845 reglement - can anyone help? Email address firstname.lastname@example.org
