Caption: Soldier, Compagnies franches de la Marine of Acadia and Plaisance (1701-1713)

A soldier of the Acadian and Plaisance Compagnies franches de la Marine garrison troops, c. 1701-13. At this time, these units wore uniforms somewhat different from the Compagnies franches in central Canada. They had no hat lace and their waistcoats, breeches and stockings were blue instead of grey-white. Reconstruction by Francis Back.
