Sample text

1800 Engineer, sapper, and miner officers wore a very similar uniform, a cornflower blue or dWUctlhtchtgrau tunic with cherry-red facings and linings, and straw-coloured trousers and waistcoats, the buttons being of yellow smooth pattern. Greatcoats were of the same colour as the tunics. All other cquipmcnt was of infantry pattcrn. ~'liner and sappcr officers worc thc ten-inch high black and yellow plume, whereas engineer officers wore a black one (it can only be assumed that the miner officcr in this plate is acting temporarily as an officer ofengineers).

At the turn of Ihe century there had been liule change in lhe traditional dress of the hussar except that he had taken the bUlloned-up overall trousers into use, these being worn over the boot. The shako, used by infantry and other arms, had also been adopled either additional to, or instead of, the fur cap and coloured bag. The circumference of lhe shako was grealer at the top than at the lower hatband so that it presented a funnel-like effect; officers and non-commissioned officers wore the customary gold-edged peak and gold stripes round the tOP of the cylinder.

The gold-bordered black general officers' head-dress with the ten-inch-high green plume was to be worn only for parades. Generaladjutants had the traditional green coat originally worn firstly by the horse-grcnadicrs and then by the Emperor Joseph's Chcvaux-Icgers des Kaisers (afterwards Uhlan Rtgimtnt 16). By an imperial command of 1765 this coat was conferred on all general-adjutants; it had the red linings and facings of the original-pattern coat but with the addition of general officer's buttons.
