Trooper, Austrian Hussar Regiment Baranyay


Raised 1696. Distinguished with the Reichsarmee from 1758. Also at Lobositz, Prague, Kolin, Moys, Chemnitz, Torgau, Freiberg.

Uniform - Light brown kalpack with red bag, yellow cords. Green pelisse and dolman with red lace, mid blue pants with red lace, buttons brass, red and yellow barrel sash, black boots with red braid edging and tassel, green sabretache with black double headed eagle (sword, orb, claws and beaks in yellow) and crown in yellow, yellow edge, brown leather straps, sabre with brass furniture. Shabraque red with yellow border.

Again, this has significant differences in the details from the other Austrian hussar regiments - and was also one of the few in a largely green uniform.

The last Austrian hussar will follow shortly - a trooper of Regiment Esterhazy.
