I had completed the 12th Line, which started out as the first Reserve Regiment in 1813. The 12th Reserve Regiment became the 24th Line when all the renumbering was done.
What I liked about both units was the issuance of the grey uniform to the troops in 1813 which was not fully replaced by the 1815 campaign. Wow, a chance to mix shades of grey with shades of Prussian blue! Oh, two companies of Silesian Schutzen ( Dark Green coats...my cup runneth over) are in the unit as well.
( Can you see why I like the 1815 Dutch Belgian choice of orange as a facing color?)

Two more line battalions to go on the 24th, hen on to the Landwehr.
