According to my copy of Funcken, none of the 10 or 11 French Napoleonic hussar regiments wore yellow.

I´m no expert on Hussars uniforms but I can´t recall ever seeing the yellow jackets with yellow trousers. I´ve done a search but can´t find any napoleonic or other that wore entirely yellow. Looks kinda good though.

I did not look at the link and I can't speak for Napoleonic hussars, but the Russians had a hussar unit that had yellow pants and jackets during the seven years war. I believe the regiment name is Zholtiy

Nice one Olaf. Zhóltiy Hussarskiy (Yellow Hussars)
The black edging on the russian hussars Looks way better than the White on the ones on the link. Great Colour scheme for a hussar reg in my Imagi-Nation

And why exactly would a bunch of Russian hussars be concerned with the womenfolk when surrounded by French soldiery???

I do wish the guy would get rid of that abysmal banner he uses- Indian headress on a soldier? Both guys twins look like they've recently picked their noses…

The napolitan guard hussars had afaik this yellow uniform between 1810 and 1812

They are the Neapolitan Guard Hussars. In one of the last pictures you see the unit from another angle and there is a flag bearer carrying a Kingdom of Naples flag.

Guys, sir?! Are these not superior officers de la Republique Francaise? Some interesting visual material in these postings/links, Tango. Just going to brush my feathered bonnet, Good Luck.
