A Hussar is a soldier belonging to the light cavalry.
The hussars were primarily used for reconnaissance and raids to supply the marching army.
In combat, their function was also to harass the enemy, to seize batteries of artillery or to hunt down troops in disarray.
Over time, they became an elite troop with colorful uniforms.
Their armament left aside the lance for the light rifle and pistols; the saber was preserved and even acquired the status of a characteristic element of the hussar dismounted from the horse. It hangs very low behind the legs and the straps which hold it and also support the sabretache (flat pocket decorated with the emblem of the regiment) .
Later the hussars were reconverted into units of honor or into armored units.
Today the French, British, Canadian and Dutch armies retain so-called “hussar” units in their armored forces.
