I mentioned on the Facebook Napoleonic page this lovely little bracelet my wife found in her late Mother's jewellery box and wanted to share it here on the blog as I'm keen to try to discover more about it, where and when was it made etc. It features Napoleon and symbols of the Empire, it must have been of some sentimental value to the original wearer. Any ideas on where to begin my search?
Also, a few shots of the assembled French army as of this week, 8 infantry battalions, 2 skirmisher units, 3 cavalry units (the Cuirassiers will follow), and a battery of guns (the 3rd gun just needs assembling and painting). There are also 4 command bases.
