Surviving veterans of the Napoleonic Wars were photographed for the final time circa 1858. Mashable retronaut, Chris Wild has compiled a visually interesting post of surviving veterans photographed in full, original uniform. It is worthy of your attention, and I think you will find more than the sabres of interest.
