In preparation for the imminent arrival of the Victrix Bavarian infantry I bought Bavarian artillery limbers from Perrys.

I got as far as the shoulder straps (which are heavily stated on these metal figures) and drew a blank. 30 minutes searching for images or descriptions online did not give me anything I could use: pictures of painted figures always seemed to avoid showing the shoulder straps and the uniform plates on Pinterest did not cover the period shown by the Perry figures (single black cross-belt and no reversed lapels). My own library is silent on Bavaria (at the moment).

Any help welcome

no shoulder straps but scale epaulettes in white metal (no fringes of course)

That would explain one of the poorer pictures which I thought was a lighting effect. This now makes sense. Many thanks.

(NB. The double post was due to not receiving an acknowledgement on my first attempt and then a TMP refresh not showing anything. Of course when I re-posted,. both were shown. It happens)

My Bavarians are only ones without limbers so interested.
You have to wait out any submit, once is enough

Additionally to the valuable information of von Winterfeld here you find an image out of the excellent three-volume regimental history about the 1st Feldartillerie-Regiment written by Xylander: link (on the left three soldiers of the Fuhrwesenkorps)

@NapStein. That is a great picture and clearly shows the epaulette. Thanks
