Since half a handful of Russian infantry reg'ts were still in mitres etc. in the Austerlitz campaign, as well as at Eylau. What are the chances of an odd battery still wearing hats rather than shakos?

I think that the shako came in in 1803 so it is unlikely. However, who knows? I think it worth the risk.
