Uruguayan soldiers from 1905

Post  wfrad on Thu 07 Dec 2017, 7:31 am

It appears that there's no one with any information regarding the Uruguayan soldiers from 1905

I don't know of any the the Osprey titles that cover the subject or of any book in English that doesn't cost a fortune.

My first thought was to do a search in Spanish for Modelling Magazines, not a language I can read or speak, but I wouldn’t try that if you're easily distracted.

After trying another search in Spanish,  I found some interesting pages.  However, once again nothing that covered what you require.
I'm posting the link for that page, although an interesting site it doesn't have what you are after.
The only mention of Uruguay is for1812.

The searches I used are:
Uniformes militares uruguayos 1900 -Pinterest
Regulaciones Uniformes del Ejército Uruguayo 1900

The link;http://miniaturasmilitaresalfonscanovas.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/uniformes-de-la-artilleria-espanola-n-7.html
Use the links on the right to navigate through the pages.

1904

If you haven't seen these pages, they may also be of interest to you.

From; http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Uruguayan_Civil_War
The Uruguayan Civil War, also known in Spanish as the Guerra Grande ("Great War"), was a series of armed conflicts between the leaders of Uruguayan independence. While officially the war lasted from 1839 until 1851, it was a part of armed conflicts that started in 1832 and continued until the final military defeat of Blancos in 1904.

Uruguayan artillery officer 1906

Post  buistR on Tue 19 Dec 2017, 3:01 pm

Attached is a photograph and description of the dress uniform of a Uruguayan artillery officer dated 1906, from an excellent website maintained by Mark Conrad - formerly an active contributor to Uniforms of the World. Probably not worn in the field during the 1905 civil war but it indicates that the French influence was strong.

Uruguay

There is a regular seller on EBay from Uruguay with various outlandishly priced books or just scanned copies of books on CDs, if you would like to spend $200 or $300 on a CD!  Sometimes there are actual items of uniforms offered:

1900 Cavalry trooper kepi

This is more like my price range for books and pamphlets but these I'm afraid are pdf http://vive.moy.su/shop/South_America_Uniforms
Just my opinion but considering that once a book is scanned, especially an old government manual, the price some of these people are asking is ridiculous.

Osprey have published over five hundred books covering the nineteenth century, their coverage of the South American conflicts is very sparse to say the least.
I believe for the nineteenth century that there maybe three or four books covering South America, an area that never stopped fighting in that period.
A good source of reference, if you can get hold of them, are Terry Hookers 'El Dorado' magazines.

These are from old Military Modelling magazines.
These are from issues of the magazine from the 1980's/90's.
It appears Uruguay isn't well covered compared to the likes of Argentina and Brazil, especially the period between the 1890's and 1920's.

Interesting cards

Four cards, from 1900 according to the listing. Not only a Uruguayan soldier, but an American one, a South African one, and a Mexican one.
