Habit, Fusilier, 21st Line Infantry Regiment (1808) Note - Buttons say "64". This is an example of a short-lived Imperial decree to transition the entire French army from the blue coat to a white coat. The idea was very unpopular with the Army and was dropped.
Side view - Habit, Fusilier, 21st Line Infantry Regiment (1808) Note how far back the shoulder straps are set. Unlike the 51st Regt. tunic, these straps button near the neck.
