1. St.Gotard, 13 September, 1799
Squadron trumpeter of the 9th hussars' Erdedi's regiment (Austria) who is dressed in the old type of uniform (1767). The trumpeters of the Hungarian hussars regiments were traditionally hired from the Germans and that's why they were dressed into the full-dress uniform instead of hussar's pelisse and wore the hat instead of the cap. Since 1798 such kind of uniform was countermanded but until the 1800 the hussar's trumpeters still continued to wear their exotic uniform.
Chasseur of the Bagrations' chasseurs' (7th) regiment (Russia) dressed in the uniform of 1797, wore the forage hat instead of the unwieldy hat and with the aglet that is buttoned to the full-dress uniform.
The field engineer of the Nazimov's pioneer company (Russia). Only one pioneer company took part in the Italian-Swiss campaign. The field engineer had the rifle at the back of him that is not defined by the order but is available due the military actions he took part in.
2. Zurich, 16 September, 1799
The dragoon of the 17th dragoons' regiment (France) dressed in the ordered uniform of 1793 year type.

3. The siege of Mantua, April to July of 1799
Sergeant of the regiment of the national border (Austria). The second Bakinsk #11 regiment of the national border took part at the siege of Mantua. The uniform of the sergeants was rather voluntary (the traditional privilege), sometimes very rich as the same as the armament.
The artilleryman of the first vacant artillery regiment (Austria) who is dressed in the regulated uniform of the 1798. The hat brims are turned up in contrast to the army regulated variant. Two companies of that regiment took part at the siege of Mantua.
The drummer of the Durasov's artillery company (Russia) who is dressed in the uniform of 1797. The company took part at the siege of Mantua as the part of the Kray's corps.
4. Trebbia, 8 June, 1799
Officer of the Couriers corps (Russia). The corps was established in 1797 to forward the personal Emperor's directions. As usual, two or three couriers participated into the campaign together with the Army. Besides other responsibilities they should deliver the captured colours and standards.
Field-officer of the grenadier Rozenberg's (Moscow) regiment (Russia).
The regiment captured three French colours at the battles near Trebbia and Nyra. It was rewarded by the Maltese colours with the legend on the distinguished service.
Cossack of the Don Cossacks regiment (Russia). The Don Cossacks regiment of Posdeev the sixth was attached to the Baranovskiy's second brigade that included the Rozenberg's grenadiers regiment. The Cossacks uniform was not regulated but the combination of red and blue, traditional for the Don Cossacks, were followed in the most cases. The Cossack has got the colours of the 17th Line Demi-brigade in his arms that was captured by the Moscow grenadiers.
