    Leib-husaren and garde-kürassiere 1860-71

    Hello!

    Thinking that getting information about the second french empire is hard i'm now looking Into some stuff about prussia during the timeframe 1860-71 which is even harder as i can hardly find any good sources on the internet about those things. I'm specifically interessted in the 2 leibhusaren regiments and the garde-kürassier regiment.
    I've seen pictures and photographs about the leib-husars and so on but from my research into the napoleonic era there are different kinds of uniforms and they get less and less flamboyant when in battle-dress.

    This is the classical deathshead husar of the victorian age. But this kinda looks more like a parade dress. In my books about the napoleonic age it is often mentioned that soliders put their kolpaks into oilskins to protect them while on campaign was this still the case? Did they look like this while in battle and if not does anyone know how their regulations for the service dress look like?

    The other thing are the garde-kürassiere:
    In all written things i found about them it is said that their helmets and cuirasses were tombak colored like with the garde-du-corps. Did they wear those tombak colored cuirasses and helmets during battle or did they exchange those during battle?

    I hope someone can help me with this as i have no idea about the uniforms of the victorian age!

    Cheers!

    I finished a figure last night and would love to hear from the experts, because I made some changes-conversion. The figure is from Metal modeles and measure 54mm, depicting a Hussar of the 5th regiment
    I think that is absolutely brilliant.

    May someone provide a source of Russian command uniforms, that range from regiment commanders to division commanders.

    French ones would also be appreciated.

    Also, was it common for cavalry brigade commanders to way the same uniform of a regiment, similar to how general cardigan of the light brigade at the battle of balaclava wore a hussar uniform. Was this same for the Napoleonic wars?

    Thanks in advance,

    some of the French uniforms are in the tread for the Rigo plates

    almost all the information was bombed away when the Netherlands were attacked in the second world war
    the place were the information was stored was also a army depot this made it a target for German bombers

    Vague similarities to the uniform of the Kingdom of Holland Guard Cuirassiers but can't find any reference to the white bearskin in either this regiment or the Imperial Guard Dragoons.

    By Waterloo, French line infantry units 'where the uniform was issued' were pretty much the same, though the types of trousers would vary. As shown on the Cent Joures site posted above.

    Be aware though that that site should be used with caution.






    I only have the text to the above plates in French I'm afraid.
