... Mostly More Dioramas!
Of course there's much more at the RGJ Museum than just the amazing Waterloo diorama. Here's a few more pics of some of their other stuff... mostly more dioramas!
First off, there's this rather fabulous depiction of a Peninsular action: The Battle of Vimiera, Portugal, 21st August, 1808. The Frenchies, under Kellerman, are dressed in a more or less completely white uniform, a look I'm not very familiar with, not being much of a Peninsular campaign buff. I was aware that the armies of early Revolutionary France were often dressed mostly in white, but I didn't know such a practice persisted or recurred eslewhere.
The top pic show most of the diorama, with the French funnelled down the valley, with Vimiera, in the background, held by the British, their main force out of view in reserve behind the town. On either flank are elements of the 95th Rifles (of Sharpe fame!), the 2nd batt. on the left, along with some artillery, and the 1st batt. on the right
