    Anyone know anything about these guys?

    They served at Bautzen and saw action there as part of the Russian’s massive advanced guard corps/wing/army. They were about the only streifkorps present on the field, but other than George’s reference to them in his order of battle, I’m striking out on getting information regarding them… where else they fought, their general organization, anything regarding their uniforms…

    Anyone able to help?

    Cheers,

    From what I can find in German language books Colonel Prendel commanded around 250 cossacks alongside a small number of other cossack streifkorps (streifcorps), occasionally teaming up with unknown Prussian hussars and Russian dragoons.
