This is an interesting color guide for the "yellow" color jacket of the Spanish Dragoons in 1808.

The colour looks about correct.

I found something similar when I was doing research.

I wonder how those uniforms looked by 1810.

Glad to hear about you dear Dr.! (smile)

The coat colour was meant to be a reminder of the buff coats worn by cavalry in the 17th and early 18th Centuries, so teh dark tone seems accurate.
