Any source for the color of the coat of the 48th line regiment in the period 1805-1807?

There will be some specials going on at vendor booth #40 this year:

Southern Belles & Northern Beauties American Civil War Pin-Up Girls in 28mm will premiere at FALL-IN!
Based on the works of Bartek Drejewicz, sculpted by Steve Barber.

Special Sale of built prototypes of my kits!
I will be selling 3 boxes full of built prototype kits at FALL-IN!

These are the first test builds of my kits. There might be slight differences to the final kit models, but that's about it. They contain all the details and open up like the regular kits.
One box alone contains the 20th Century Train Station! The rest is a mix from all my ranges (The Legend of Riverfield, Industrial, Master Builder Series etc.) Stock is very limited, i. e. only 1 prototype per model! So you better have a look early on…

Preview of 2 models of the upcoming Kickstarter campaign "Russian Village" of 28mm laser-cut buildings

Plus lots of my regular 28mm and 15mm laser-cut kits, Gamer's Grass, Tiny Tales Studio, Stoessi's Heroes, Heer46 and much more…

Hope to see you there!

The bug is hitting me hard this morning :-(

So I will just leave it as it is.
It will be best for you to come over to vendor booth #40 at FALL-IN!

Before 1812 (and the introduction of the Imperial Livery) the drummers of the 48th wore a dark blue coat with a scarlet collar, coat tails, lapels and cuffs. All piped areas and coat buttons were laced with a broad white lace with a scarlet pattern. The drummer's coat in the top row of this plate is a 48th Ligne drummer's coat
