THE FÜSILIER-BATAILLON OF THE 9 . RESERVE-INFANTERIE-REGIMENT SKIRMISHING ON THE MORNING OF THE BATTLE OF LAON, ON THE SLOPE ABOVE THE VILLAGE ARDON, MARCH 9, 1814 

A company surgeon has installed himself in one of the vineyards. Further down the slope, the line of the supporting detachment for the skirmishers can be seen. Thanks to the fog which lasted until noon, the two battalions of the 9. Reserve-lnfanterie-Regiment who were mainly engaged in skirmishing lost only 4 men and suffered 19 wounded on this day.
From November 15 to 19, 1814, the regiment stayed in the town of Munster. With the help of civilian craftsmen, they spent the time repairing their clothing and equipment, ready for the winter campaign.
By the beginning of January 1814, the Füsilier-Bataillon had been reduced to 400 men. In the course of January, the regiment received 333 reinforcements, who were distributed to the companies. The regimental history notes that the uniforms of the new men had the uniform distinctions of many different regiments, unfortunately no more detail is provided. The uniforms of the reinforcements were always taken from stock at hand, there was no question of selecting uniforms matching those of the destination unit.
In the winter campaign of 1814, greatcoats were generally worn, which covered up the diversity and the ragged state of the uniforms beneath them. The uniform of the company surgeons had been prescribed on November 15, 1808 as ‘dark blue uniform with one row of the same buttons as are worn by the regiment. Collar, cuffs and lining of the uniform of blue colour, but all three with piping in the color of the regiment’s collar. This piping is to be found on collar and cuffs, down the front of the uniform, on the pocket flaps and on the turnbacks. The shoulder straps were also identical to those of the regiment.
