Not visible here are the red silk bags, which hang down the rear of each bearskin. NCOs have yellow lace on the outer edges of their red silk bags to set them apart from the enlisted men. I’ve decided to leave the gaiters black for all ranks in the name of expediency. Oh, I’ve also just finished the brown haversacks, which are also out of sight in these two photos.
In compliance with a recent request made by Jim “Alte Fritz” Purky, I’ve worked a bit more on the mounted officer, Augustus von Finknottle. "Colonel Gussie" isn’t quite finished yet, but he’s looking rather dashing atop his black steed, don’t you think?
