Sir Davis, A simple yet effect uniform, reminds me of the Russian summer uniform...

Red! The French wore red for their summer uniform! The world must be coming to an end - now I can have red Russians, red French, and red British. Thank you, kind sir. :^)

Hi Bill,

Yes, indeed, the red variant is very like. :-)

Thanks for commenting.

All the best,

David.

Hi Jim,

They had red, white *and* blue, according to the waistcoat (veste) colour, as my notes will show when I get round to doing them. (Shades of the later tricolour, possibly? ;-)) :-) As far as I can tell, in Europe the French still tended to wear the grey-white justaucorps and this wearing of the veste only was confined to the colonies.

Thanks for commenting.

Cheers,

David.
