That last one is questionable/debatable. Given that it's before Waterloo I can only assume that it is depicting a man of the Grenadier, right flank company. To my knowledge there is no evidence that Grenadier or Light company soldiers had different cartouche pouch badges to the centre companies. Dress was different, but my understanding is that that was confined to a device added to the shako plate and a white plume. I will be interested to know what others can add.

Yes i did think that was odd too, there is nothing in the write up on it. Artist is Angus McBride.

So we can see that these devices from 1704 eventually made their way on to the Waterloo Shako over 100 years later.

Yes, there is no doubt that the cartouche badge was in form and function the conception of later head dress badges right through to today.
