The "regimental" trim for this unit was a red and yellow diced affair. I'm wondering if it was duplicated on the Trumpeter's lace. Anyone have any pictures or sources?

Thanks

Although image is for 1801-03 lacing would have been the same in 1805.

Essling,

Many thanks. That's exactly what I was looking for. I believe I can reproduce that lace in my CAD program. Getting it to stick to a 1/72 plastic figure will be the real challenge.

You're using- link which we found discussing jaeger right?

SHaT,

No. The link provided by Essling is not the same, and the one you provide does not show the Horse Guards trumpeter uniform.
