BNC 29s British Heavy Cavalry Trumpeter
It is very rare to find S range cavallryy figures with the original bar between theuir feet, which carried their code number. Therefore they are notoriously difficult to identify with absolute confidence - as one hussar may look a lot like another. The effect is slightly spoiled here by ethe moulding plug on the right side of the bar which partly obscures the code. While it looks like it might be BNC 27S (which I can't find in any listing I have seen) I think (and hope it is BNC 29S, because of the bicorne.
As I acquired this figure with about 6 officers and four more troopers I now have some proper command figures for my existing units.
