It seems that the Ottoman uniform after the 1877 Russo-Turkish war became an exact copy of the Prussian one. Replace the fez with the pickelhaube and you have the landsers of the 1870 Franco-Prussian war :)

Mr Saral,

That first painting you link to has exquisite detail. Who is the grey bearded gentleman (front-right) meant to represent?

The painting is the work of Fausto Zonaro (Masi-Padova Sept.18th 1854- d.San Remo July 19th 1929) He came to Istanbul on Nov. 5th 1891. He was the artist of the Sultan at palace. After the fall of Sultan Abdulhamit he left Turkey forever.

The white bearded gentlemen is the commanding Pasha of the Ertugrul Cav.Regiment. I dont know his name.

The painting is called "Ertugrul Suvari Alayi" which means in English "Ertugrul Cav. Regt."

Ertugrul is the father of Sultan Osman who grunded Ottoman Empire.( in Turkish "Osmanli Devleti" )For that reason the Regiment was named after Ertugrul Ghazi.
