Hello Everybody,
I have noticed that the above mentioned site has not been available for some days.
Anyone knows what happened? In my opinion it is one of the main sources of Napoleonic information and it would be a real pity if it would close for good.

I do not know why it is closed but agree, it will be a shame if the site closes permanently. I use it often as a source of info.

I hope that this is a temporary glitch. This is such a good site. Some of the images are still available on Google Images.

Yep, just noticed last night. Was looking for artillery info for British batteries.
This site is indispensable!

Perhaps it's being updated because, to be honest, it needs it bad!

Paul :)

Let's hope it's just an update or host change.
I am wondering if the owner could be able to offer a PDF or something similar with the site content for sale.

Let us face it….how many of us would pay for access to this if needed? I certainly would………

Summat wrong for sure…..


Sharpe5211 Mar 2018 12:49 p.m. PST

Maybe I wouldn't like to pay a periodical fee but perhaps paying a reasonable sum for a PDF could be acceptable
At least for me:-)

If nothing else, I;d be happy to host over it at for free….

Thank you EC,

You can find it in the way back machine Aka internet archive.

When I saw the topic I thought "Mont Saint Jean Site" it was about a visitor center and museum. About half why down I realize it was a website. It is really early in the morning. I need some coffee.

This message, dated 7 March 2018, is from an archived page:

"Bonjour à tous et bienvenue sur ce site.

"Il est actif depuis août 2005. Je le réalise pour présenter mon travail de recherche. J'espère que cette visite vous plaira et que vous trouverez des informations dignes d'intérêt. Cliquez bien sur les symboles dans les organigrammes mais aussi sur les boutons "Uniformes" des descriptifs d'unités pour obtenir les planches d'uniformes déjà réalisées."

Doesn't seem like there was an intention to shut down the site.

Someone must know this chap, Alexis Cabaret, personally, after all this time.

If I may make a suggestion, someone who is fluent in French might try switching their search engine to return results only in French, and then try a search with the official website title to see what sort of chatter may turn up on French forums about this. I'm afraid my own French isn't good enough.

Mike the Analyst12 Mar 2018 8:32 a.m. PST

Hmm, the archive site seems to contain the structure and information but not the plates unfortunately.

Sir Sidney Ruff Diamond12 Mar 2018 8:45 a.m. PST

Sorely missed hope it comes back.

Personal logo deadhead Supporting Member of TMP12 Mar 2018 9:06 a.m. PST

Facebook?……..seems he is on it but that is a complete mystery to me. Tried French language search without success.

Nothing since 2015 on FB

138SquadronRAF Supporting Member of TMP12 Mar 2018 3:30 p.m. PST

Wayback Machine shows no activity in 2018.

Checking various links on that site show the webpages but no pictures of the uniforms.

IIRC this has happened before. Unfortunately, owing to the new 'feature' on TMP I was unable to search this site directly. Similarly my efforts using Google turned up nothing.

marshalGreg13 Mar 2018 5:33 a.m. PST

I used it a week ago and it worked fine.
THis is what I see now
: link
Yes hopefully this will be temperory.


Oliver Schmidt13 Mar 2018 5:44 a.m. PST

Seems he has re-arranged his site.

Playing around a bit with the URL, I found:  <= working

He hasn't yet updated his main site

which still points to

AuvergneWargamer13 Mar 2018 6:01 a.m. PST

A great shame as it was so very useful for troops numbers as well as uniforms!



Marc at work13 Mar 2018 6:27 a.m. PST

Oliver – yes, your first link works perfectly for me. Phew…

Thank you

Personal logo deadhead Supporting Member of TMP13 Mar 2018 6:30 a.m. PST

Let us give thanks and praise…… is right and fitting

marshalGreg13 Mar 2018 6:32 a.m. PST

Three cheer to Oliver!
Hurrah Hurrah, and Hurrah!


Marcel180913 Mar 2018 12:30 p.m. PST

Thank you so much Oliver, it has been restored on my pC thnks to your link, you deserve a medal, or even a statue.

My go to for late war uniforms.

Hi, problem with my host. Sorry for the cut-off access. This should be OK before the week end.


4th Cuirassier14 Mar 2018 2:50 a.m. PST

Hi Alexis

Your site is an excellent bit of work – thanks very much for all that you do.

Thank you for all your hard work producing and maintaining this site. I'm sure I would speak for many here that were you to adopt a Patreon funding we would gladly pay to support your efforts.
