Infantrie Artillerie de Marine - 1813
Finally got some Battalions out for the French Infantrie de Marine for Leipzig 1813.
After digging around for resources on these guys ... and finding the usual mix of conflicting details from different sources, I settled on this "interpretation", which I reckon fits the feel of these units well. See what you think.
All of the line troops have greatcoats, and are still equipped in bicornes. Note that all the leather cross belts are black as well.
All pompoms are red, and to distinguish them from regular troops in greatcoats, they have a little brass anchor insignia on the left sleeve.
Finally, the flag is standard French tricolor, with a gold anchor symbol. OK, I made that up, but it works for me :)
