Uniforms Of Spanish Units At Talavera

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

Field Marshal

Based on a portrait of Marshal Rafael Manglano. The jacket is the same type as the previous standard, but this usually has the flaps open, the style imposed by the French generals. The feathered bicorne hat model resembles the gala, but is not the same. Maybe it's a pledge "custom" (very common in the uniforms of the generals of the time). Note that it only has gold braid on the cuffs, as a sign of rank.
