This is a long shot, I know, but I am having difficulty tracing an ancestor who was a Colonel of the 1st Lancers (Northern Army) in France around the period of the formation of Belgium 1831 and the subsequent and very short civil war. It would appear he was a junior Officer at Borodino (1812), again 1st Regt Chasseurs a Cheval. Other than that very sketchy info. I am just after a link to French army records or contact details with researchers in this field. I don't have a name for the chap. That's the problem. Only that we know this much info. As he was at Borodino, there's a chance he was a Legion of Honour recipient. Any help gratefully received.
