In the photo captioned 'the team rider and horse...' (back on page 1 of this thread, sorry), I noticed the beautiful sabre he's carrying. It's a 1796 pattern Light Cavalry Sabre and was used primarily by the British Light Dragoons and Hussars along with the King's German Legion light cavalry during the Napoleonic Wars. It was adopted by the Prussians as the 1811 pattern or Blücher sabre and was used by Portuguese and Spanish cavalry.tigre wrote:Hello to all ; comrades not only at war.......
