Late 17th century Compagnies franches de la marine

I got my old scanner working and scanned these images of cfdlM in the late 17thc. Also here is an interpretation of the ceinturon with plug bayonet and sword set-up. The image is from the Wursthorn collection and reproduced in Neptunia.
It's a rare and detailed look at the subject and well worth looking at in close-up. The fusil looks like the Marine musket repro I blogged before. Of course this set-up may have been modified for winter warfare with capot and tapabord.
