2020 Christmas set - Garde Grenadiers Full Dress 1804-1815 - The French Army - 54mm Painted in Gloss

Tradition of London is proud to present its Christmas Set for 2020
Garde Grenadiers Full Dress 1804-1815 - The French Army

The Imperial Guard  was originally a small group of elite soldiers of the French Army under the direct command of Napoleon I, but grew considerably over time. It acted as his bodyguard and tactical reserve, and he was careful of its use in battle.

The Guard was divided into the staff, infantry, cavalry, and artillery regiments, as well as battalions of sappers and marines.

The guard itself as a whole distinguished between the experienced veterans and less experienced members by being separated into three sections: the Old Guard, Middle Guard and Young Guard.

The figures are made in England of quality white metal and meticulously hand-painted in gloss enamel to the highest standards.

This special limited edition “Christmas 2020 Set” is only available during the year of issue.

Size 54mm - Painted in Gloss - Price code D


Tradition Magazine 1-76

Around 1964 Tradition began publishing a groundbreaking, prestigious magazine on military uniforms
which went under the title Tradition and following the success of the magazine
the model soldier range and their shop were similarly named.

Many leading military authors and artists, past and present, were at the time contributors to
Tradition magazine which ceased publication in 1974.
Fortunately, a number of past issues of this famous magazine are still available.
We are now reproducing the Tradition Magazine no longer in stock.
Each issue contains many articles on military uniforms and related subjects
fully illustrated in black and white and colour
