I am working on Austrian soldiers for both 1859 and 1866. I have a number of sources for uniform details concerning most infantry, artillery and cavalry figures. However, I am having trouble finding details concerning uniforms for Austrian Volunteer units. In particular I would like information concerning the uniforms for these Battle Honours figures that I purchased: link

I would appreciate any help that people could give me concerning uniform details for these Austrian Volunteer figures.

Thank you,
