    Thank you very much Anton but none of those match.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Sachsen Husaren but it's not exactly the same.

    Gentlemen....thanks for the super enlargement of the photo ! I can now based on the following observations identyfy these chaps......shoulder straps have the entwined "AR" a Saxon cypher, the Regiment wears "Double Litzen" both around collar and on the "Swedish style" cuffs, the cap cockades are Saxon, (colour would be white/green/white) the shoulder boards will be blue with red piping with white cypher and are "squared" at the ends, this Regiments straps could be completely squared off at the ends or partially, see photo of wartime shoulder strap.....so this means it could only be a recruit company of Grenadiers from the "Kgl. Sächs. 1. (Leib-)Grenadier-Regt. Nr.100" garrisoned at (Dresden, and part of the XII Armee Korps.
    ........Voilà !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Correct Anton !.....a squared off shoulder strap, text book style, although in reality, the boards used could have a slightly pointy end !
    Prost ! Steve.
