    French Marshal Napoleonic period.
    Neither Marshall Murat, Ney, St Cyr nor Poniatowski.
    Possibly Davout? But given that he\'s wearing a Hussars Pelisse and Dolmen I\'m not sure.

    Yes The Collar is definitley French Napoleonic period laurels and not British.
    British Naval officers uniforms were lapel fronted and not braided.
    Like so:-

    yeah, I\'m pretty sure they said he was French,
    for the life of me I can\'t remember the company either, it was from a show in Gravesend, thought it was El Greco, but there\'s nothing like it on their site
