The Grenadiers à Cheval Surtout is a battledress of French origin.[4][5]

OverviewEdit

The Grenadiers à Cheval Surtout was introduced in 1804 in order to be used as the primary field uniform of the recently founded Grenadiers à Cheval de la Garde Impériale. The surtout was fastened with 6-10 buttons and was without white lapels and red cuffs. It was worn during battles in the period 1805-1809 such as the Battle of Eylau. In 1809 the surtout of rank and file was replaced by so-called Second Full Dress. However majority of the officers and NCOs continued with the old surtout until 1814. The cost of a complete surtout garment was 54,47 francs.[6]
