    • I admire all the uniforms of this era. I would have to pick the uniform of the Grenadiers A Cheval as my favorite,everytime I see a picture or a model of this I just have to stop and admire.
      If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon

                Actually, they wore their warm long greatcoats ( see bellow ).

                    • Rare portrait of Lasalle looking snappy in his dragoon uniform as General de Brigade of the 2nd Brigade of Dragoons. Dragoon uniforms always looked sharp indeed.
