    Bonsoir,
    I propose here to go to meet some of the most famous soldiers of a bygone era, the Hussars.
    Symbols of proud elegance, the Hussars will have worn high their dressed uniforms, to the city as to the war. Originally from Hungary, they spread throughout the world, directly through the service of Hungarian troops, and indirectly by the adoption of their tactical and clothing specificities by most armies.
