Another unit from the log jam on my desk. These are Essex 15mm Russian Isum Hussars. The Isum Regt. was awarded silver trumpets for capturing a standard, and rescuing Barclay de Tolley at Eylau. According to Philip Haythornthwaite. As I'm writing this I just noticed I made a mistake which I will fix. The Trumper doesn't have a red pompom.
