French Officer takes a hit in a sensitive area!

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd share this amusing lithograph. The artist is Braud and I guess it was painted around the mid 1800s. I know nothing else about it, so if anyone can identify the regiment, that would be interesting.

Thanks

A quick Goggle search on the name 'Braud' suggests it was used to sign paintings by one Edward Dubar who was a Belgian born artist in the 19th century which would tie in nicely with this being a Belgian Regiment.

Hello Alex!

Looking closely at the picture, I wonder if it depicts the different Belgian army lancer regiments, as all of them have different coloured lancer caps (see the lancers in the window - yellow and white, respectively), and on the two in the foreground one can see numbers on the lancer cap plates (see below).

4th Lancers, perhaps?

1st Lancers?
