    I’m excited!-) I think I’ve cracked the mystery of планшевый!
    It’s been eluding enthusiasts for years. I saw a Russian language blog claiming the definition had been lost is time. Actually the answer appears to have been in front of our noses, but obscured by Dahl – the Russian OED equivalent – who seems to have made a mistake in the color definition.
    I try to compile very carefully, but every once in a while I get to make novel contribution, so YEAH!

    Okay, you can find the answer and raise my Google profile by visiting the page:

    Oh yeah, a couple more early Dragoon officer boutonnieres as well.

    There is something strange about that page – it came up as an html listing and my anti-virus went bananas.

    works better for you. Some years ago they changed their URLs, but allowed you to use their old ones which they redirected…

    Hi Jonathan,

    The update is much appreciated as ever.  Congratulations on your detective work. Even if I don’t know how to pronounce планшевый I do now know what colour it is.

    Just to let you know, the page works fine when I use Safari to access it, but if I use Firefox the illustrations of the sword knots and pompoms fail to show up.
