From 1807 to 1812 the French Infantry fought campaigns in Russia, Austria, Italy and the Iberian Peninsula. By 1808 each infantry battalion comprised of four companies of fusiliers, one of voltigeurs and one of Grenadiers. Each employed 140 men giving a battalion a theoretical total of 840, but due to campaign losses 400 to 600 was more usual.
Infantrymen wore a long tailed blue coat with red cuffs and collar; regulation until 1812 when a shorter jacket was introduced, but still widely used into 1813 and 1814. Most wore a shako, often protected by a waterproof cover. Fusilier companies wore a different colored pompom on their shako; 1st green, 2nd : blue, 3rd orange, 4th violet. Voltigeurs had yellow and green plumes, epaulettes, sword knots and shako cords, while those of the Grenadiers were red.
