Finished my company command base. These fellas are part of the famous Kornilov Shock Regiment that fought in south Russia 1917-1920. It was one of the so-called colourful units, the "official" uniform was black or dark blue trousers, Black shirt plus a red cap. But only some higher ranks officers wore the full dress. The vast majority wore everything they could get, mainly Imperial Russian uniform items. This officer was lucky enough to get a brandnew british jacket.
