Last Week's Uniform of the Week

Surely among the best known of the world's military police are the Italian Caribinieri. This wonderful photograph comes from 1875 and the poser bears a medal that shows that he fought in the Italian Independence Conflict. As well as the fantastic moustache the mix between simplistic elegance and flamboyant decoration is quite interesting.
The Caribinieri still exist and they still maintain the great elegance of old...
