Command Stand (rear view)

Rear view of that command stand of the 28th legere. Here you can see the "Chef-de-Bataillon" of the first battalion of the 28th, the fearless and much-decorated Jean-Etienne de Bricole, as he urges his men forward for Glory and l'Empereur! Flag by GMB. 

Note the dreaded backpacks and blanket rolls, with all those goddam straps...
