LINE INFANTRY GRENADIER Slightly swaying, his gaze focused on his pipe, our grenadier is dressed in his field uniform: the “imperial blue” coat with white cloth lapels and seven buttons on each side, a white plastron and on which intersect white leather jackets, and scarlet fringed epaulets. The end of the sleeves is adorned with a facing in red cloth with white tabs. Like all Grenadiers, he wears his imposing teddy bear, this bear hair cap (which at the end of the Empire will be made of goat hair, much less expensive), A braided white cord connects the red plume to the oval-shaped racket (on the left side of the cap). He wears his pouch, attached after a blackened leather banner, is attached to the uniform by means of a short martingale to one of the waist buttons. The pouch is intended to receive the necessary for shooting (including cartridges, each Grenadier receives fifty) and for the maintenance of the rifle. He sports his saber-briquet with a straight blade which measured 60 centimeters, carried on the back, which frees the legs of the infantrymen for a more flexible and rapid march. Placed on the ground, wedged in the crook of his arm, his infantry rifle model 1777, modified Year IX measures not far from a meter ninety eight including bayonet.
