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

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.


Hope this helps.
