Sapper of the National Militia

The attire is more red than orange. The headgear is not clearly shown but is certainly the bear fur busby. It has no cords and the plume is a red instead of a white apple; a grenade and crescent(?) on the front, both in yellow metal. The sleeves close with a fly, just like the infantry of the Standing Army. Some suspect that this is actually a sapper of Infantry Battalion No. 8 (formerly 2nd Battalion Orange Legion).
