About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

The senior grenadier regiments were the elite infantry of the French Army. They had a fearsome reputation as soldiers. Grenadiers had once specialised in throwing grenades. This required tall, strong men, who were both brave and calm when throwing a live, unstable grenade. By 1815 grenadiers were the shock troops in all armies.
