Another "Spot The Cantiniere" 1857

This Cantiniere was from the Guides of the Imperial Guard of Napoleon III taken at the Chalons training camp in1857. It's further evidence that these women were actually there with the troops rather than just decoration.

The RMN http://www.rmn.fr/ site has photos of an actual uniform.

The Guide Cantiniere shows up in several period prints.
