Regale us with tales of fine victories, unit histories, painted troops and elaborate missions during the era of Frederick the Great, but please do not forget to pass the port!

Saxon Generals uniform colour

Postby Mr Steve » Wed Sep 30, 2015 11:44 pm

Hi
can anyone help clear up the following point:
I have conflicting information regarding the uniform colour for the Saxon General Staff .
Kronoskaf gives the coat colour for Generals as Red
James Wood says white , lined red.

This is for the Saxon units in French service after Pirna

Thanks

Steve

Steve,

I highly recommend Stephen Summerfield's book on the Saxon Army of the Austrian War of Succession and the Seven Years War: Uniforms, Organisation and Equipment, it is a gamers delight!

generals: WAS coat white, SYW coat Poppy Red
Staff Officers: Coats White, Cuffs, Turnbacks and Waistcoats Red and silver braid.

Cheers
Drew

Thanks Drew

I had also posted this question on TMP and after some discussion the final result was also Red .
Luckily for me Dr.Summerfield joined in on another question I had raised on Saxon gun carriages which was great.

I have edited a few of Stephen Books like the Hanoverian Army of the SYW, natural really, since I own a 28mm Hanoverian range of miniatures :) and find his books to be excellent. I have also purchased many of his fine works. A good guide to his current works are here
