Sharpe's Eagle (1993)

Sharpe's Eagle is the second episode of the Carlton UK series Sharpe, starring Sean Bean as Captain Richard Sharpe, the officer of a small Rifles detachment during the Napoleonic Wars. Sharpe and his "Chosen Men" are attached to the newly-formed South Essex Regiment, made up of raw recruits and commanded by the cruel, cowardly, and incompetent Sir Henry Simmerson. After the regiment disgraces itself by losing its flag standard in a minor skirmish with the French, Sharpe vows to regain the regiment's honor by capturing an Imperial Eagle standard from the French in the Battle of Talavera.

The following weapons were used in the television series Sharpe's Eagle:
