I have a question about tokens with Blanchisseuse or Vivandier on them. Blanchisseuse and Vivandier were part of the civil people that followed an army. Blanchisseuse is a laundry woman who can wash the soldiers clothes. Vivandier sold food and drink to the soldiers. Below you can see a token from the fresh army in Hannover about 1804-05.
My question si how was this token used. Was it for a prepaid service, a token confirming you were an "official" Blanchisseuse or something entire different?
