  • Here is the first five of 36 images

    And welcome to the forums.






    This last one is unusual as it depicts a Dragoon wearing a dolman of his old unit, the 12th Hussars. After conversion to dragoons their was a shortage of dragoon coats, so they had to carry on wearing the dolman for a while.

    ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
    All human ills he can subdue,
    Or with a bauble or medal
    Can win mans heart for you;
    And many a blessing know to stew
    To make a megloamaniac bright;
    Give honour to the dainty Corse,
    The Pixie is a little shite.

        • This uniform experiment (Project) came about due to the problems of dying the cloth to green, (had to be dyed blue then again in yellow) but thankfully, they persevered. This uniform would have been awful.

              • Here are some Dragoons of the guard. I have included a rousselot plat as I do not have a plate of a superior officer, which will be at the end of my posting.
