Kingdom of Naples - Royal guards

Another unit that I virtually found 'by random' when looking for something completely different, was the King's Royal guard of the Kingdom of Naples. It was shown on a little painting and I found a confirmation regarding this unit on the web, but no specification about the time period when this unit existed. Due to the fact that many uniforms changed from the double breast pre-Bardin style to a single breast version under King Murat, I suppose that this example is from the earlier years of the Kingdom of Naples.

It's a very colourful uniform, with fusiliers, voltigeurs and grenadiers having different distinctive colours. There is little to be modified for getting this unit done.

Next will be the rest of the Kingdom of Holland units and Italian light infantry.
