Well loosingar, you`ve certainly put some work in here, and I like the conversion`s very much,but I`ve just become aware of the fact, after looking these Bod`s up in a review , that the Cornet, ( trumpeter!) should be in red, and not in reverse colour`s .We all make mistakes,and hopefully we learn from them, and what the heck ! If you are satisfied with the colour he is in, thats fine by me.

Well... Yes or No... Maybe... :)

C. E. Franklin
British Napoleonic Uniforms
ISBN 978-1-86227-484-6
page 56 - picture
page 55:
- The trumpeter's jacket of 1800 was of green cloth with scarlet collar, cuffs, wings, shoulder straps and turn-backs, feathered with white cloth. The jacket was laced with ten chevron loop placed in pairs. The loops, straps, dubby and along the breast was laced with narrow lace. Broad lace everywhere else.
- The 1812 jacket did not reach this unit until after 1813.

and page 19:
Heavy Cavalry Trumpeters
Like the drummers of infantry, the colonel of the regiment was the determining factor in the uniform of the trumpeters and it is clear that the trumpeters and musicians were dressed at considerable expense and sometimes in quite outlandish uniforms. The uniforms of the trumpeters had become so conspicuous with their reversed colours, Glasgow' sleeves and horseshoe wings that it well explains the regulation of September 1811 that the trumpeters should be dressed in a similar manner to that of the private soldiers.

Maybe colonel 5 dragoon slightly delayed the transfer to the new form of trumpeters. :) :)
One green jacket between all redcoats looks nice, so I consciously made it green. :) :)
