Mouton went to France early in 1844 and married Louise Brigitte Jolly. Returning to the Punjab in 1845, he fought in the first Anglo Sikh war (1845-46). He, in concert with Hurbon, had planned the defence of Sabhraon. After the war, the British deported Mouton to France. He was reinstated in the French army, with a colonel`s rank and had the Legion of Honour bestowed upon him. He participated in the Crimean War. He retired from the army in 1865 and died in Algeria on 9 November 1876. Mouton published a report in French, Rapport (Paris 1846) in which he described himself as commandant of the regular cavalry of the Sikh army.
