Next Cavalry

Post  wfrad on Tue 30 Jun 2009, 8:08 am

Hi edil
Very nice, when can we expect the cavalry.
They Austrian infantry held onto the white uniform for quite some time and must have been a real pain for the ordinary soldier.
Regards
WF

Hello I am Italian, just south of the Great Greece (Islands and Naples). I hope to create the cavalry, but I do not know which specialties. Very often the uniforms were white because the white fabric cost a lot less colorful fabric. I had my site for uniforms, but I was not very lucky, I put my drawings here, for the happiness of all.
You excuse me for my bad Anglosaxon. thanks for the greetings

thanks for the information, the colors are taken from the magazine napitalia, I believe that the name that I have found some regiments, for many, the name of the noble family that formed the regiment itself. Indeed, the regiments from the Italian name are names of noble families of the South tirol

Thw white may have been cheaper to aquire than colored cloth, but I'm sure washing them must've been a bigger pain in the ass. Many of the soldiers who wore them no doubt must've dreaded that task.
