The retention of bicornes seems curiously retro and out of sorts with every other regiment (of any army) at Waterloo. Given that the uniform, less facings, is the same for all three regiments and based on the French Bardin style, the bicornes seem even more incongruous - one would have expected all three regiments to be in the same headdress. And yet it's hard to ignore the few sources that show bicornes (and there aren't many).
|Clear evidence of a bicorne.|
|This figure has the Bardin jacket|
|Here, all three regiments are shown.|
My figures are Italieri dragoons with head changes. I've gone for quite a dark pink, which in hindsight could be a little strong!
|I've got quite a few more of these to come.|
|And just as you think you have it right another source suggests they wore a Grecian helmet. Who knows the truth?!|
