Swiss detachment No. 31

Three water-colours of soldiers of Swiss detachment No. 31, c. 1816-1818: on the left; a flanker, middle; a musician and right; a fusilier in a drill uniform. In particular, the uniform of the musician has some features that were not prescribed, such as the catch cord around the shako. The right figure wears the black-shako cover of washed linen with the detachment number in white, which later would be abolished.
