Major-Parade Dress Berlin 1910

  • Sculpted by: Paul Deheleanu
  • Box Art Painted by: Rod Curtis
  • Price: $69.95
AS EARLY AS 1704, THE PRUSSIANS WERE USING CAVALRY TROOPS ARMED WITH LANCES. THE ULANENS WERE USED PRIMARILY FOR SCOUTING AND FORAGING DUTIES FOR WHICH THE ULANENS BECAME JUSTLY FAMOUS.

AFTER THE NAPOLEONIC WARS PRUSSIA SAW THE NEED TO REBUILD IT'S ARMIES AND TWO GARDE ULANEN REGIMENTS WERE FORMED ON THE ORDERS OF KING FRIEDRICH WILHELM III. THE 1ST ULANEN GARDE REGIMENT WAS GARRISONED AT POTSDAM AND THE 2ND GARDE WAS GARRISONED AT BERLIN. IN 1860 THE 3RD ULANEN GARDE REGIMENT WAS FORMED AND GARRISONED AT POTSDAM.

IN 1848 THE 2ND GARDE ULANENS WERE USED DURING STREET BATTLES IN BERLIN. DURING THE GERMAN-PRUSSIAN WAR OF 1870-71, THE 2ND GUARD LANCERS SAW ACTION FIRST IN LORRAINE WITH SUBSEQUENT ADVANCE THROUGH THE ARDENNES TO PARIS, WHERE THEY WERE ASSIGNED TO THE SIEGE TROOPS. IN EARLY 1871 THE REGIMENT WAS MOVED TO NORTHERN FRANCE AND DEPLOYED IN THE REGION OF ST. QUENTIN AND AMIENS. IN THIS WAR THE REGIMENT HAD ONLY SMALL LOSSES. TWELVE MEN WERE WOUNDED AND TWENTY MEN FELL ILL.
