Superb photos of uniforms. I always look forward to your posts on TMP. Thank you for posting them.
The museum displays have improved since I last saw them many years ago.

Some great pictures there, thanks for posting them. The top photo you show here, (and photo 14 on the link shows it more clearly) a helmet with a red comb, similar shape to a Tarlton – does anyone know what uniform that is?

Looks like the helmets supposedly issued to the 2eme and 3eme Porte-Aigle? So would have been worn by only two people per Ligne Regiment at best

Introduced by the Bardin regulations, they would normally also be equipped with halberds and pistols.

Pictures of the same helmet appears on Dawson's "Napoleon's Waterloo Army", although he raises doubts on how many were actually worn because they were often unrecorded, or the Porte-Aigles were knpwn to wear Shako's.
