Sharpe's Rifles Minifigs (British 95th Rifles)
Over the Hills and Far Away... one of the most famous fighting units from the Napoleonic Wars was the 95th Rifle Corps of Great Britain. Their riflemen were rightly feared by the French for their ability to accurately pick off the enemy at ranges much further than common infantry could. This unit was fondly recalled in the British television series "Sharpe's," about a young officer named Richard Sharpe who was raised from the ranks to lead. The series covered his rise from sergeant to lieutenant colonel, leading a band of riflemen through many of the great battles of the Peninsular War, finally ending at Waterloo.
About this creation


"The Chosen Men, eh? Well, I didn't choose ya." Sharpe stands in the middle, adorned in his Rifle Corps officer's uniform. He is flanked on the right by his trusty Sergeant Harper, while the well-read Corporal Harris stands to the right. In the background are his best shot and resident bard Corporal Hagman, and one of his earlier charges, Private Cooper.




A shot of the dynamic duo, Sharpe and Harper. While Sharpe was clearly the hero of the show, Harper tended to steal it with clever one-liners, delivered in his distinctive Irish brogue.




"Men are dirty, Mr. Sharpe. Rifles are clean!" Captain William Frederickson was a commander of the British 60th Rifles unit, and had a recurring role. With his false teeth, wig, German accent, and proclivity for field dentistry, the stoic officer known as Sweet William was one of the most memorable characters on the show. Note the distinctive red collar of the 60th, as opposed to the black collar of the 95th.




A shot of the two rifle officers and good friends. Sweet William had a complex relationship with Sharpe, going from reliable ally, to rival for the affections of a shared love interest, and finally to trusted friend.
