Two companies were formed in 1682 to serve aboard the newly created bomb-ketches; one company at Brest and another one at Toulon. In 1694, a third company was formed in Rochefort.
The bombardiers de la Marine were elite troops and were not submitted to military exercices. They did not consider themselves as soldiers but rather as experts of naval artillery in general and mortars in particular.
In 1761, the unit was disbanded.
In January 1762, a few companies of the Corps Royal de l'Artillerie were appointed to the service of the French Navy. They were desiganted as the Bombardiers du Corps Royal de l'Artillerie.
In 1774, Choiseul reinstated the unit of Bombardiers de la Marine. These new companies had blue uniforms.
In 1786, the three companies of Bombardiers de la Marine were disbanded for good and replaced by the Canonniers-matelots (sailors-gunners)
If you need more information about the history and uniform :

That solves the problem of the plume. we did not know weather to or not so thank you Zastrow for the info.. Palo did a fantastic job on him and he looks great. we thought we would do something a little different.
He will join the other 2 in the AWI range which is turning into something we are very proud of. we will post when he's ready for shipping.
