Hi,

Can anyone provide me with uniform/horse furniture/flag details for the Duke of Osuna's cavalry (not dragoon) regiment that served at Tangiers briefly in 1680-83? I believe that the coats were off white/light grey, and the hats were a similar light colour, but I have nothing more on facings, horse furniture.

One of our Spanish members, Chema1986, did supply a picture in a sculpting thread, but it was via photobucket and has thus gone the way of all flesh.

Thanks.

I have a soft copy of "The Spanish Armies in the War of the League of Augsburg" by GianCarlo Boeri, Jose Luis Mirecki & Jose Palau.

This provides a picture of the Osuna Cavalry Regiment (which, I think, is the one included in Chema1986's post).

The description is as follows :

Light grey/white coat, cuffs & hat lace. Red saddle cloth & pistol cover - both with white border.

Please PM me if you want a soft copy of the above document - very much recommended.

Thank you, that was all I needed, except to ask did they wear cuirasses in 1680?

I'm looking to include it as part of a "Tangiers Garrison" army for a FoGR competition next February.

>>>did they wear cuirasses in 1680?

It sounds as though they did. The above source includes the following :

"Until the mid 1680's cuirassiers and lancers wore breast and back plates, or at least the breastplate..."

Hi there, Yes sadly all my photobucket pics are gone... I´m working on a new method... sorry for the late answer, yes all the info provided by Glorfindel is right. Happy painting and show us pics of your horsemen!

Cheers
