This is the original Gouache painting by Patrick Nicolle.

The "Death Ride" of the Prussian Uhlans at Mars-le-Tour in 1870 was similar to Britain's Light Cavalry charge at Balaclava - heroic, but costly. Right (l to r) an Austrian Uhlan (1815), a Russian Uhlan (1812), and an Uhlan of the Grand Duchy of Warsaw (1807-14). Top right, czapkas, the traditional headgear of the lancer - left, Prussian Uhlan helmet; right, Uhlan czapja used in bad weather; bottom right, a Russian model with a rear flap that could be turned down in the rain.

Original artwork for illustrations on pp10-11 in Look and Learn issue no 690 (5 April 1975). Please note vertical crease where board was folded down the centre. This is reflected in the price.
