After some researches, I added to my blog and to my templates also the Austrian Regiments that partecipated to the Italian Campaign in 1848/49.
From my blog:

"The Austrian Army in 1848 had 4 Uhlan Regiments; in Italy, there were present the 3rd Uhlan Regiment Erzherzog Karl Ludwig and the 4th Regiment Kaiser Ferdinand. This units were usualy raised in the Polish and Galician parts of Empire, following the traditions of these countries for fierce cavaliers.

The tactical unit was the "Division", i.e. 2 squadrons put together, every squadron had 180 men. Every Regiment of Uhlans had 4 Divisionen for hence 8 squadrons, around 1.440 men/regiment. Moreover there was the General Staff of the Regiment.
Each squadron was itself split into 2 Wings (Flugel) each of which was on 2 Pelotons. So every peloton had 45 men. During the campaign 1848/49 every regiment was reinforced by 300 new recrtuits, pratically raising the number of a regiment up to 1.800 men. Just 16 men per squadron had a carabine the rest with spear.

For the Campaign in Italy they wore the following distiguishing Czapka: 3rd Reg: RED; 3th Reg: WHITE"
