Chasseur d’Orléans

Images of this experimental unit here.
OK just found out this isn't a Chasseur d'Orleans - see the comment for the true identity.

  1. This picture is actually one of sergent Montellier of the bataillon des chasseurs à pied de la garde impériale in his model 1860 uniform. This soldier took a flag away from an austrian regiment at the Battle of Solferino in 1859. As you can see he has many medals...
