DAN 21 Light Dragoons galloping, swords shouldered 1812-14


Please note that the turban cloth was red for all Light Dragoon regiments from 1812. This was because the cloth used before (usually of regimental colour) was made of Dutch cloth called "Tamis", but was too expensive, so Danish cloth called "Chalon" was ordered to be used, but this was only made in red. Note also they wear the new grey overalls, already in use from 1808, replacing the older dark blue ones (which if they had them in stock they were allowed "to be worn out, before the new ones were distributed")
