I am attempting to recreate units of Napoleons invasion of 1812 ( Imperial Guard, Davout Ney etc)
The regimental artillery has posed a problem, not with the French units, their uniforms are quite well documented, it is the foreign units, notably the Vistula Legion attached to the guard, and other foreign units e.g Joseph Napoleons Regt etc. I can find no source for these uniforms.
Any assistance very welcome

Dear Eddie
The Imperial Guard used Gribeauval 4-pdrs and were operated by the Young Guard Artillery.

The Vistula Legion would have artillery uniforms not much different from the Duchy of Warsaw. Some handlanger from the attached regiment. These used Prussian 3-pdrs.

Joseph Napoleon Regiment had blue gunners uniforms and Handlanger from the unit.

Most French artillery detachments were armed with Austrian 3-pdrs.
