Napoleonic Cavalry Uniforms

Napoleonic Cavalry Uniform details by L&F Funcken
When I started out with the painting of miniatures, quite often the written elements of what comprises the uniform of a cavalryman in the Napoleonic period.

It took my discovery of the Funcken books and this illustration to fully detail out the parts of the uniform.

When I bought my Funken books in the early '70's, only the French language versions were available; just to add to the confusion over what is a Pelisse or a Shabraque.
