yes and I hope for a lot of sword-fighters and attacking poses. I imagine the light brigade, the first troops breaking in the Russian artillery, while the rest is still behind in formation (or what was left of it). Please not too much firing guys this time
Thanks David for the information. I have a lot of material for both units. Where is the museum of the British Husars in the UK? Maybe I can put it on my next visit.
For the 11th Hussars
The Kings Royal Hussars (as they are now) Museum is in Winchester
For the 8th Hussars
The Queens Royal Irish Hussars( Queens Royal Hussars now) collection is in Eastbourne (Redoubt Fortress)
The QRH, not museum, but web site is:
both are basically in SE England.
British Cavalry regiments go through a lot of amalgamations as you would expect so it can be very confusing. British regiments are a little like families so if they merge, their collections go with them even though they may end up far from the original recruiting area.
Yup Strelets are getting the reputation for making cannon fodder sets.
Another cavalry regiment to be thrown against the guns."Use once only", tehn throw away, chuckle.
I hope these hussars will have reasonable and noticeable beards and sideburns than the previous Brit cav Crimean sets. I guess they will leap frog(forgive th epun) teh french cavb , earlier announced Brit Guards and Light Inf(should scrap this last box anyway).
