    They both wore fur hats. If you do a bit of googling, you can find good early photographic evidence of their use in the Crimea. If you would like post-Waterloo, pre-Crimean schematic plates, I can post them

    Another thing I'm wondering about. The Prussian Leib Husaren Regiment had according to Knötel a special Oilskin cover with their Skulls and Crossbones insignia on it, I thought it was only for the shako itself but seemingly it was also on their oilskin.

    does anybody know anything about this? I've never seen any insignia on Oilskin covers.
    Isn't this Knotel watercolor copyrighted? It is from Napoleonic Uniforms, is it not?

    Fur caps were ceremonial in the Guards, Grenadier Companies, Fusiliers and some bandsmen at this time, not worn in the field. The Scots Greys wore their Fur caps at Waterloo covered with a black oilskin. The Albert helmet was introduced in 1842-7 until 1871 when it was replaced by the similar pattern which is more or less what you see today being worn by the Household Cavalry.

    Does anyone know how long the bearskin caps were used in the field for the Scots greys and Foot guard units? They ofc wore different uniforms in overseas deployment but there must be an enddate for when they stopped being part of the field uniform in „european“ service

    would also be nice to know when the albert helmet was replaced in the cavalry

    do you by chance have the Rousselot Plates for the Mamloukes of the Guard with text? Couldn‘t find it in the Best uniform thread
    Rousselot didn't do a Mamalukes of the Guard plate. But what he did do was a set of six Soldats d'Autrefois

    have you looked in these books? There is a list of them which can be viewed. They are excellent though some are in black and white.

    So I have a question regarding Russian Cuirassiers of the Military Order Regiment. The Officers wore a Helmet with the Order on it instead of the normal double headed eagle. Did the normal troopers also wear this helmet or did they have the normal Cuirassier helmet? The normal rank and file had normal Shabraques with the imperial Monogram while the officers had the Order on them so maybe the same thing is for the helmets?

    Thank you! Wonder where the wrong Blue coloration comes from cause i've seen it quite often. Probably someone took the nickname "The Blues" too seriously hahaha
