militaria item Foot artillery shako plate, 1st regiment, other ranks
- French
This would have been worn on a variety of shakos, the earlier ones being the bell top type, replaced around 1845 by several types with progressively lower crowns. The 1st regiment, La Fere, raised in 1720, was the oldest foot artillery unit of France and the one into which Napoleon Bonaparte was first commissioned in 1785.

militaria item Sapeurs Pompiers de la Marine helmet plate
- French
This has to be one of the rarest of the 2nd Empire military fire brigade badges, being the helmet plate for the navy branch. The helmet was a magnificent looking creation in brass with a high comb and fancy chin scales. This would have been worn on the front of the helmet, above the peak and below the crest.

militaria item Infantry chasseur officer's gorget
- French
This is the classic French gorget, the shape inherited from the old Napoleonic examples, which usually carried the eagle. With the Bourbon restoration in 1815, the lilies replaced the eagle. Under Napoleon III, a silver Napoleonic eagle replaced the lilies in 1854. The hunting horn indicates a light infantry unit / chasseurs.

- French
This attribution is based on the central device, which was carried on the sabretache and the cartouche plates of the officers of this unit. The Chasseur a Cheval were Napoleon III's personal escort, in the style of his illustrious uncle. However, this badge was also worn by the cuirassier and dragoon units of the Imperial Guard.
