This is a lemon-yellow, parade plastron, which was correct for Ulanen-Regiment Graf Haesler (2. Brandenburgisches) Nr 11. The Regiment was founded in 1860 and garrisoned at Saarburg. It was assigned to the XXI. ArmeeKorps. It also was correct for Schleswig-Holsteinsches Ulanen-Regiment Nr 15. The Regiment was founded six years later, in 1866. It also was garrisoned at Saarburg and assigned to the XXI. ArmeeKorps. In addition it would be correct for Ulanen-Regiment König Wilhelm I. (2. Württ.) Nr 20. This Regiment was founded in 1809 and was garrisoned at Ludwigsburg. It was attached to XIII ArmeeKorps. A plastron is an additional attachment that fits over an ulanka’s chest for dress or parade functions. A total of fourteen buttons and five clips appear on its reverse to attach it to the tunic. It is an extremely difficult-to-find uniform accessory. A plastron truly completes an ulanka. Our example is in excellent condition.
