Uniforms Of Spanish Units At Talavera

(Spanish Text by José Manuel Rodríguez Gómez, Illustrations by Jose Maria Bueno)

Brigadier General

These usually wear a dark blue coat. The coat was an unknown article in the Spanish army until the arrival of the French. Except for the coat, the rest of his costume (bicorne hat, breeches, sword ...) is completely inconsistent with the regulations of 1805. Unlike earlier, the twists and ornaments of this general are silver. No sash, since its use was reserved for senior generals. Based on a portrait painted by Goya.
