About this deal

Sappers wore bearskin caps with red cords, plumes, and a back panel with a white cross, red epaulettes, red crossed axes on the upper sleeves, and a white or buff apron. The cuirass had front and back plates made of polished steel and had leather straps with brass scales, brass studs and fittings and the cuirass lining was edged with white in all regiments.

The first hussar regiment in the French army was the Hussars-Royaux (Royal Hussars), raised from Hungarian deserters in 1692. They wore a bearskin cap with a brass plate stamped with a flaming grenade on the front, red cords and plume, and a red back patch with a white cross. Following the conservation work, financed by a public appeal launched by the Fondation Napoléon, of Napoleon’s Chasseur Colonel uniform worn on St Helena and the bicorne hat he wore at Waterloo, these two historic garments will be presented to the public at the Museums of Sens on Thursday 18 May at 17h. Each image is accompanied by a useful description and the single appendix serves as an index for each of the colour plates.

It was in this age of war that military uniforms flourished, with an astonishing array of flamboyance, colour and intricate detail.

knapsack was made of cow hide with two straps (later three straps) to hold the rolled greatcoat on the top. The colourful military uniforms of hussars from 1700 onwards were inspired by the prevailing Hungarian fashions of the day. In 1807, the hat was replaced by the shako, which was made of black felt, chevron on the side and visor, a brass diamond shaped plate stamped with the Imperial eagle over the unit's regimental number, white cords, and brass chin scales.

The tunic is supplied with the Sergeants chevrons but not the Crossed flag insignia that is illustrated. This our 'standard' version of the 95th Officers tunic, made from Rifle Green wool with black velvet collar and cuffs, the example illustrated is the one we make for the majority of our Re-enactor clients. Weapons consisted of an "Oriental" scimitar, a brace of pistols in a holder decorated with a brass crescent and star, and a dagger.

The illustrations are crisp and detailed, often with accompanying captions explaining any unusual or eccentric elements of decoration. Following their example, hussar regiments were introduced into at least twelve European armies by 1800. Created for one of our clients to his specification this Prussian Pelise is circa 1815, this is a collectors quality garment made in military grade wool with silver russia lace and real fur. To Clarify: Inside Leg Measurement is also known as Inseam and is the length of the inside seam of your trousers, from the crutch to the hem. Part Three shows the commonalties of the infantry and considers the uniform appropriate to each regiment, such as those of the Drummers and Highland Regiments, as well as their tartans.

From the officers and standard-bearers, drummers and buglers to the Egyptian army and the special units, arranged by infantry, cavalry, artillery, general staff, etc.

Waist Size refers to your largest stomach circumference, as our trousers are high waisted, and not worn as low as modern trousers. Spain was just one of the many countries which resisted the expansion of the French Empire under Napoleon I. While headgear and details in cut changed, the uniform remained almost completely the same from the beginning of the French Revolution.
