Sidi Brahim 1845

Following André Fonteyne’s post about Chasseur à pied uniforms in the 1840s, here is an article about Sidi Brahim that appeared some years ago in the French magazine Tradition. It contains some fine uniform illustrations by Pierre Benigni, not only of the chasseurs, but also of the 2nd Hussars, whose 2nd squadron took part in this disastrous but heroic action.
