Did the Dutch-Belgians in 1815 have forage caps? I'm thinking of doing some conversions for Dutch-Belgian artillery and was wondering if the French bonnet de police and/or the Pokalem might have been worn?

At least the militia did have a cap, very similar to the Hanoverians. I think Perry makes figures with a cap as well.

Thank you, I wonder if the artillery also wore such peaked caps. I really like them!

I have certainly given my DB artillery the peaked cap. I understand that it was quite a widely issued bit of kit in 1815.
