So I found this image online while looking for Napoleonic Era uniforms for the British Highland regiments. And I’m somewhat confused.
I know these guys are obviously cavalry, but I can’t place a country to them or what type of cavalry they are. I think they’re either Cuirassiers or Dragoons but I don’t know for certain.
I know the French has some clues to it, but.. well, I’m lazy. And I also don’t really trust Google Translate.
