By Tony Broughton

Following on from the previous article on the Armes d’Honneur Awarded to the Regiments d'Infanterie de Ligne below is listed the Armes d’Honneur awarded to the Regiments d'Infanterie Legere. The Regiments d'Infanterie Legere received a total of Two hundred and thirty eight Armes d’Honneur.

Sabres d’Honneur: Sixty-five
Fusils d’Honneur: One hundred sixty-two
Baguettes d’Honneur: Nine
Carbine d’Honneur: One
Award unknown: One

As before the regiments would have been classed as Demi-brigades d'Infanterie Legere, however as all the Regiments apart from the 20e and 30e Demi-brigades which were disbanded in 1803 and 1802 respectively served during the Empire period I have given them their imperial title Regiments d'Infanterie Legere.
