Cavalry bashlyk riding hood, REPRODUCTION. Cold
weather garment worn
wrapped around the neck and over the shoulders by Cossacks
extra warmth (and to make a more stylish appearance).
One size fits all. A quality, Russian-made reproduction in
light weight khaki brown wool, with green cloth trimming.
This is virtually identical to the pattern used in WW 1 and
during the Civil War. While the Cossack "hosts"
in the Red Army in 1936 chose specific bright colors (like
or blue) for their bashlyki, photographs indicate
plainer colors like this were also worn throughout WW 2.
Excellent condition. Please note: none of the other uniform
items in the photographs is
included with the bashlyk.
