POLL DESCRIPTION

Writing in First Empire magazine, Steve Palatka notes:

The Gardes d'Honneur were raised by a Senatus-Consulte of the 3rd April 1813 in an effort by Napoleon to rebuild a viable cavalry force after the catastrophic losses suffered in Russia the previous year.

His 5-page article in issue 90 presents the history of the unit, illustrated with uniform plates.

From your miniatures collection, can you field Les Gardes d'Honneur of 1813-14?
