Gentlemen;

A recent post by KoppiBlogger has a picture at the Blüchermuseum of two Prussian Drums that are blue and yellow.
Most of the plates I've seen they are red and white?
Which is it, or both?
Any input would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Thomas

do we know that those are Prussian drums? In Kaub there are not only Prussian items on exhibition but also for example French and Russian

the identical topic was raised on the napoleon-series.org forum, Oliver Schmidt wrote a competent commentary on that.
