Husaria sketches

it has been a while since I posted any hussaria sketches.
well, voila, there are some, in various stages of 'undress' as per finishing etc :)

Nota bene 'O quam dulce et decorum est pro patria mori!' was and still is written on the  monument of Crown Grand Hetman Stanisław Żółkiewski killed in action at the battle of Cecora, and eventually buried  St. Lawrence's Church in Źółkwia, now Zhovkva in Ukraine. The monument stands in the area where hetman was killed in 1620 - Berezovca, Moldova.

 a Facebook page devoted to Husaria (winged hussars) history and reenactment has been having a little competition - "your own image showing hussaria or somehow connected to hussaria'' - and I placed one of these sketches there

Bardzo ładne - jak są zamocowane skrzydła na ostatnim szkicu?
