Very nice, and I have a soft spot for the 33rd. Probably right about the Eylau story, but surely something happened for His Imperial Majesty to change course so abruptly.

They look really nice! Had never heard of this white uniform but now I need to paint one.

Do you guys know if any infantry regiments still wore the white uniform into Russia in 1812.
I know that Napoleon instituted a return to the blue uniforms in 1807 after Eylau – but was wondering if this was followed 100% or if any of the regiments kept the white uniform into 1812

Any knowledge out there?

Such an abundance of knowledge available in here that I will give my question above a second "go"..

Is there any chance or indications that the white uniform was kept by some of the regiments well after 1807?
