Can anyone point me in the right direction or otherwise aid me in determining the correct colors for Napoleonic Swedish cavalry?
Thanks,
Terry

Swedish Uniforms

Post  wfrad on Mon 24 Sep 2012, 7:00 am

To simplify them,
The uniforms for Dragoons were in general pale blue, Hussars dark blue with red cuffs and the Royal Life Guards were also mainly pale blue and white.
In Cassin-Scott's Uniforms of the Napoleonic Wars there's only a couple of illustrations.
The illustration below is from Osprey's Scandinavian Armies.

Many thanks, "wfrad"
I have ordered the "Scandanavian armies" Osprey pub at a somewhat stiff price. With your push, maybe I can paint some figures.
Best regards,
Terry

Vinkhuizen (NYPL) has a number of pictures. Find your explanatory text somewhere else, though.
