Swedish artillerymen uniforms during the Scania War

Post by Charlie Dozen » Tue Jul 31, 2018 12:34 pm

I have information for the Danish artillerymen uniforms for this period but can't seem to find anything for the Swedes. Does anyone here have information regarding Swedish artillerymen uniforms during the Scania War?

Thanks for your reply, I have Hoglund's Scanian War 1675-79 but didn't see any reference to the artilleryman's uniform.
