Hessian Dragoons

Enlisted dragoons from Garde-Dragoner-Regiment (1. Großherzoglich Hessisches) Nr 23 (above) and Leib-Dragoner-Regiment (2. Großherzoglich Hessisches) Nr. 24 (below). Love the Hessian Dragoon regiments – still on the lookout for a good DR23 or DR 24 pickelhaube.


I think that enlisted Hessian Dragoon helmets
are harder to find than the officers helmets.
I had an e m example years ago with the Waffenrock
but it is long gone and I have not seen another one .
Epaulettes with the NII cypher do not show up

I am a little late to the party as I am out at sea on deployment but I'll show the EM DR24 helmet in my collection which popped up in an antique store a few months ago to this impressive thread. I'm still on the hunt for chinscales myself.
