Musician of Prussian Infantry Regiment No. 47

Uniform and unit details to follow...

Well, it seems I was wrong about hating Prussian musicians' lace so much, as here's another with funny lace I've just done - this one seems to have space invaders along it! Perhaps it's the lingering effects of yesterday's hospital anaesthetic doing funny things to the brain that has me doing yet more... The fusilier helmet is new and correct for Regiment 47. I also wanted to do a variation of the fusilier uniform that has an interestingly different facing colour, as most are some variation on red.

Musician of Prussian Infantry Regiment No. 55

Most of the later fusilier regiments wore much simpler uniforms than the earlier raised units; this is one of the commonest styles worn by musicians of many of those regiments. The colour version is a musician of Regiment No. 55, with lace with a central orange stripe, a wider yellow stripe and an outer white stripe.
