Little information I found, you said the 4e are middle guard that is not true they are young guards after the war they did became Old guard.

In 1815 even the newly formed 3e and 4e Grenadiers, and 3e and 4e Chasseurs became Old Guard.

The flaming bomb was the badge of the Grenadier Company of the regiment during the RevWar. It now is the symbol of the regiment which is nowadays referred to as The Grenadier Guards.

You can see that the grenade was a spherical bomb. It was hollow cast iron, and looked like a small cannonball. It was filled with gunpowder and small balls. There was a round hole in part of the surface through which it had been filled and into which the fuse fitted.

The fuse was merely a length of slow match, cut to size, and it passed through a wooden plug that was rammed home into the round hole in the casing. It was a simple matter to light the fuse using the slow match stored in the brass match case. It took a strong (and courageous) man to hurl them. It took someone with intelligence to cut the fuse to the right length. A miscalculation could result in death of the grenadier.

By the time of the RevWar, grenades had been discontinued as being ineffective, but the Grenadiers remained as 'shock troops'. Since they were an elite, they retained their cap badges, their match cases and their hangers.
