    One thought on “Dutch-Belgian Troops of the Napoleonic Wars”

    1. Old skool Men At Arms. Not bad for an Englishman at the time and he certainly doesn't fall for the anti-Allied bent of British Waterloo historians. It does betray his limited grasp of the Dutch language though.Nice note: image of the uniform of the Surinam colonial guides (bloack troops in service of the Dutch) in 1815
