Alexandriiski Rgt Hussars

Dear friends,

I have a problem. I have some sources that mentioned that this regiment used black colour in 1803-1807 and others showing it in red "carmine" pellise and dolman.In 1809 new colours were adopted and this regiment turn it to black pellise and dolman. Why some source ( Courcelle) based on Viskovatoff show it in red.In Elting it was described that in 1803 Alexander put it into black which it apparently worn previously.
