COPTIC SOLDIERS AND OFFICERS OF THE COPTIC LEGION – GERMAN FIGURINES
In previous articles, I shared drawing, paintings and figurines of the Coptic Legion that fought the Mamelukes and Ottomans in Egypt in 1799-1801, and then fought with the French Army in its European Napoleonic wars. I would like to add today, some German figurines (flat tins) of the Coptic Legion which were sold recently on eBay. They are twelve pieces (30mm each) of Coptic soldiers and officers; with a drummer and one cavalry officer. They all wear their distinctive uniform which I wrote about before. Above is the lot.
