Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Davai - Re: winter dress for hussars

Hi Donald,

especially in 1812 the Russians had shortcommings with uniforms. The new recruits for the infantry fought in the grey training uniform at the French retreat. Take a look at Osprey Russian Grenadier for more details.

So when the simple infantry uniform was difficult to get what about a flamboyant hussar uniform? The Russians had the same problems as the allies with the cold and winter clothing.

I don't know any contemporary painting showing Russian hussars in greatcoat. So I fear we have to trust the secondary sources. Or does anybody know a primary source?
