Weapons

The Sixth Regiment Huzaren van Boreel

A hussar of the 6th regiment Huzaren van Boreel had the following weapons:

Sabel

Sabre (The so-called Bl├╝chersabre, a German model sabre that was also often used with the British light cavalry. This was later replaced by the Dutch M1815 sabre for light cavalry)

pistool

Two pistols (M1815, this is the Dutch version of the French cavalry pistol)

Karabijn

Carbine (Dutch M1815. This weapon also showed great similarities with the French Carbine)

There was a shortage of firearms at Waterloo for the Dutch cavalry, so most hussars only had their sabre to fight with.
