Uniforms of the 19th century Qajar Persian armies.....
« on: January 05, 2018, 12:46:30 PM »
Would any of my learned LAFers have any pictures of potential uniforms of troops making up the Persian Army in or around 1870?  Thinking of adding to my 'fictional 2nd Afghan War campaign intervention forces'.

Thank you in advance!

There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today...turn two points to port.

A range of coneheads in bathrobes?

Westfalia produced Napoleonic era Persians. The uniforms would be wrong but at least the caps would be right and that's probably the most distinctive aspect of the troops and the bit the eye would be drawn to so probably acceptable proxies.
