    Uhlans were Polish-Lithuanian light cavalry. The title was later used by lancer regiments in the Russian, Prussian, Saxon, Austrian and other armies.

    In 1914, the Imperial German Army included twenty-six Uhlan regiments, three of which were Guard regiments, twenty-one line (sixteen Prussian, two Württemberg and three Saxon) and two from the autonomous Royal Bavarian Army. All German Uhlan regiments wore Polish style czapkas and tunics with plastron fronts, both in coloured parade uniforms and the field grey service dress introduced in 1910. Because German hussar, dragoon and cuirassier regiments also carried lances in 1914, there was a tendency among their French and British opponents to describe all German cavalry as "uhlans".

    After seeing mounted action during the early weeks of World War I, the Uhlan regiments were either dismounted to serve as "cavalry rifles" in the trenches of the Western Front, or transferred to the Eastern Front where more primitive conditions made it possible for horse cavalry to still play a useful role.

    A dark blue (known as iron-grey) greatcoat was usually worn regardless of weather, along with the famous baggy red trousers, and comfortable kepi. The most common rifle was the 1893 model Lebel.
