Le Petit Journal is a great source of inspiration
though for example the troops depicted had blue
jackets....but I love the vibrancy of all their plates
and they capture the period perfectly, great post thanks ;)

Inkpaduta Osprey has another book about their colonies and its troops slighted to come out in late October.

French Naval & Colonial Troops 1872–1914

Just found it for Pre-order on Amazon.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.
