A Trumpeter for the Guard Chasseurs

With the Hut temperature back to a balmy 5 degrees I have once again taken up residence. No damage to report except that my tub of PVA glue froze solid and had to be chucked so something to put on my list for Santa.

As you can see, the trumpeter is finished and I’m rather pleased with the result. The pale blue dolman against the deep red pelisse is particularly pleasing, well to my eye anyway.

I’m thinking that the four chasseurs now sat on my desk do look quite Christmassy although that probably wasn’t the aim when the uniform was devised.
