Seeking information on uniform details for Prussian Pontooniers and Pioneers please?

Dark blue coat with dark blue lapels. Dark Blue Swedish cuffs. Orange waistcoat and breeches. Silver buttons. Red turn backs. Headgear was a small mitre (smaller than a fusilier mitre) with a silver plate and all clothwork (band and bag) orange.

Pioneers and Pontonniers wore basically the same uniform.

I did up a handful of figures as described above. Not sure what I'll do with them but by golly if I ever need Prussian pioneers, I've got them!

Any pictures at all?

I didn't shorten the mitre caps, and took a standard bearer and gave him a pickax instead. Hope they help (and work). Tinypics has been giving me trouble of late.

Please take a look at my Blog for an article on pontoons:

Stuart at Maverick Models has now produced flags for Pioneers, Pontooniers and Artillery.

Front Rank do a nice standard bearer under SYP17 which I believe is very suitable for Pioneers and Pontooniers.
