What is the latest it would be acceptable to use the French camelry corps?
I love the uniforms and was thinking of kitting them out in greatcoats for maybe 1812-14 winter campaigns.
Thoughts guys?

The Corps des Dromadaires was disbanded in 1801, after the French surrendered to the British following the battle of Alexandria and the subsequent Anglo-Egyptian siege of that city.  Initially composed of three squadrons, plus a strong dismounted company, they numbered around 700 when first formed in 1799, but had been reduced to under 250 of all types by the time of the surrender.
