I am about to start painting 14th LD for the Peninsular c. 1811.

Franklins book shows a trumpeters jacket c.1799 which is orange with blue cuffs and collar with white lace. Was this in use in 1811? Also, would the trumpeter be mounted on a white horse.

I have the details for officers and troopers from Osprey and Franklin's book so, I'm OK there but I have a question about mounts within a regiment or within a squadron. Were they one colour, all black for example, or a mix of colours?

Thanks for looking,

James

Just found what I needed on JJ's blog. Thanks JJ, for posting.

Orange jacket as per Franklin, white horse.

Mixed shades of brown.

Certainly go with the reversed facings for pre-1812. The white horse was the aspiration for trumpeters, but on campaign this soon gave way to whatever they could get.
