    Nice. I assume "Spanish cuirassier" means the 13me Regiment? If so, I thought they wore a madder red habit of locally obtained dyes rather than the bright purple shown. Am I missing something? Just curious.

    Thanks - that is indeed the French 13me, which I believe started life as the 3me provisional, dressed in the same material monks' robes were made if due to lack of availability of the standard dark blue. The cuirass trim would still be the standard red edged white.

    Thanks Eduardo. That's what I was winder ine as I know nothing of the Spanish army. Cool idea to have this as a possible French or Spanish piece. I am still a bit suspicious of the purple tunic but that's OK.

    Good luck with it.

    That bust depicts a Spanish cuirassier, that is, a cuirassier of the Spanish army, not a French one. The Spanish army formed one squadron of cuirassiers who used cuirasses and helmets captured from the French. They wore red tunics with green (some sources say blue) facings.
    As a side note, the brown cloth extensively used in Spain (and southern France) at the time had nothing to do with monks. It was made of the cheapest available wool, that from brown sheep!
