Firstly, was the horse furniture roughly the same as in the Napoleonic period? From what I can find it looks like it was.
Secondly, did the cavalry regts of cuirassiers, dragoons and lancers still put their trumpeters in jackets of the regt facings colour. Again from what I can find about the cuirassiers I think they did but can anyone confirm or deny that please? I'm assuming again that the regt facings were exactly the same as in the Napoleonic period, I can't think why they would alter them, certainly not for the principal regts. Were epaulettes in red for O/R or did they have them in other colours such as facing colours?
