95th Chosen Man

CODE: NA383

Availability: NOW

‘Chosen Men’ were the Napoleonic eras equivalent of today’s Lance Corporals. Whilst one step below an NCO (Non Commissioned Officer) they were selected to command a squad (6-10 men) for their intelligence, bravery and military abilities. The rank was unofficial and used at the discretion of commanding officers. Men selected to be ‘Chosen’ wore a single white armband on their upper right arm. ‘Chosen Men’ often went on to be promoted to NCO rank later. Our ‘Chosen Man’ is kneeling, cocking his Baker Rifle.
