French uniforms

Post 14 February 2019, 21:15

I was wondering if anybody might have any ideas on what these French uniforms might be?

It is early days at the moment and I am not certain about who these men are (surname likely Leroux and family from Orleans), so seeking clues to help to possibly identify them.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

You should try on the french language forum: there is a special forum for military questions.

You can use google translate.

This time, it's not too bad & I made one or two modifications
--------------------------------------

Je me demandais si quelqu'un aurait une idée de ce que pourraient être ces uniformes français?

Il est encore tôt dans mes recherches pour le moment et je ne suis pas sûr de savoir qui sont ces hommes
Nom de famille probablement Leroux, et la famille serait d’Orléans

Je cherche donc des indices pour nous aider à les identifier éventuellement.

Merci d'avance pour votre aide.

Hello,

the uniform on the second photo looks a lot like the one from my great-grand father so from the 1880's. If you have the original photo a zoom on the west button might tell you which branch of the army he was from (my GGF was from artillery and the button had an exploding bomb on them).

best,

Laurent
