Waldrecker Horse Guards

The Waldrecker Horse Guards, until recently commanded by the Generalmajor of Horse, the late Götz Graf von Sickingen, are the senior regiment of horse within the Waldreckerheer, and function both as the personal bodyguard of Prinz Friedrich von Waldreck and the heavy horse regiment of the army. Upon von Sickingen's still-mysterious assassination somewhere on the Moselweg outside Bruttig, Prinz Friedrich assumed personal command of the regiment, although day-to-day command rests, as it had largely during the command of von Sickingen, with Oberstleutnant Georg Rottenfels.

Sober, restrained, yet pleasant.
"The Pfalzgraf of Waldreck is officially Lutheran": even if of some 'deviant' form, it shows in such uniform.

Compliments,

A very good-looking uniform. I like it very much. Good work.

Interesting information about Prinz Friedrich of Waldreck's "postprandial entertainments"…
