I have some 28mm Battle Honors Austrian Cuirassiers for 1866. I noticed that the troopers have a sash. From the pictures I have seen, I have only seen officers with a sash (gold and black). Did the regular troopers also have a sash? If so what color is it? Or is this just a mistake by the sculptor?

Sorry, I do not know the army, but this book might help link

No sash, no cuirass.

Thanks Mollinary. I knew they didn't have a cuirass and based on the information I had I assumed they shouldn't have a sash either. I appreciate the confirmation.
