First of all, welcome aboard Grognard1789.

They are not midgets, they are children from the Military School.

Hussards forever

My favourite napoleonic uniforms: the hussards. The uniform in attachment belongs to the prince of Salm-Kyrburg, ADC of Napoleon on 1806. Really impressive.

About the full yellow and full white uniforms of Neapolitan Guard's Hussards, in Italy we think that these plates are completely wrong, result of the artist's fantasy. Plates from Neapolitan artists depict different uniforms, as in attachment.

This is the first time I hear about this issue. Thanks for the heads up.

Interesting. How old were they? Did they already practice with muskets?

A midget regiment would be very cool, though, thanks for shattering my dreams.
