One of the biggest problems for the Polish period I am dealing with is the lack of information regarding Uniforms.
Most uniforms are either from the Glory days of the Winged Hussars 15-16th Century, or from the last desperate attempts to hold the Commonwealth together in the 1790's. From the 1700- 1790's it seems dificult to find reliable information. A lo of this probably has to do with the deplorable state of the Commonwealth at this time.
However today I found some lovely examples of Polish uniforms of around 1717, just before they seem to have been completely saxonized.

|oficers and men |
So finally Things can get Started!!
I have been looking at some election scenarios for 1696 after the death of King Jan III Sobieski, but thats another story!
