    What about the early period? Did Spanish grenadiers mostly wear mitres in the early years of the 18th century?

    In the early period, i think the mitre would be a mixture between a short bearskin hat with a mitre in the front... but not a "pure" mitre like -for instance- the Prussian armies. But i think that this is a terminology discussion

    But, no problem, Geronimo, the mitres -or "mini mitres"- in the early XVIII century were weared by spanish grenadiers. When i talk about mitre, i talk about the mitre of the example and in the late period -so far, in 1800-

    Pom, might I suggest you look at using the hat of the euro_drummer2 model which is a default ETW model for the early mitres of the kind carricanta describes from the early 18th century? They are very close to the shape of the bearskin-mitre hybrid grenadier-caps. Screenshot below:

    Interesting Carricanta. They also look very close to the alleged early Portuguese grenadier mitres still worne by Grenadier musicians in the 1740s judging by the picture I showed a long time ago shown in MRR's book. Suggests to me that Portuguese and Spanish grenadier fashions were very close.

    Yes Geronimo, so close in the catholic states who adopted the white jacket uniform in the fall of the XVII century (France, Spain, Portugal, Austria), but with Spain is really close with France.

    Found this French grenadier mitre from Les Invalides here from the 7 years war, suggesting that it - like Spain - occasionally used mitres too. Intriguing - though it's apparently a controversial topic with some regarding it as having been worne by engineers instead.

    An awesome link with the Spanish Regiments in Napoles (1755) and the italian regiments under spanish flag

    http://www.aulamilitar.com/

    Switch " Estado Militar de 1755" directly and "siguiente" -next in english-

    with regiments like



    Regimiento de Infantería Val di Mazara





    Regimiento Infantería Farnesio





    Regimiento Nacional Basilicata


    Because, when we talk about the Spanish Soldiers in the XVIII century, we don´t must forget the Americas, Filipinas, the Valons and the Italians

    Oh thanks Carricanta, good work! I'll just wait for the captions of the Tropas Virrreynales.
    And BTW, do you know anything about the uniforms of the spanish units in Africa (Ceuta, Oran, Mellila)?
