History of «Mustache» :
“At the Battle of Austerlitz, his leg was broken while saving the flag of his regiment. The intrepid barbet had indeed thrown himself into the fray, in spite of the bayonets and the grape-shot, rushing towards the corpse of the standard-bearer. Barking furiously, Mustache had struck the Russians to grab hold of the flag struck with the eagle. The soldiers had found their furry mascot a few hours later, lying on the side, the paw broken by a bullet ... but the flag pole still stuck in its mouth. (Charles De Saint Sauveur, 2016). "
