Swedish Uniforms in the Battle of Fraustadt

The following page is a speculative description of how the Swedish uniforms looked like in the battle of Fraustadt. Several of the participating regiments received new uniforms in 1704 which were not described in the sources. These are: the Liv-dragoons, Bremen Dragoon Regiment, Nyland Cavalry Regiment and the infantry regiments of Södermanland and Kronoberg. I have for these and in similar cases made the assumption that the new uniforms looked just like the preceding uniforms. The Vallack Regiment has no known uniforms at all and I am not just uncertain of which colour they had on the uniforms but also which cut they had. Here they are depicted with the same type of long coats and furry caps which Cossacks and Russian streltsy had.
