Figure 3: This 'reiter' is less well protected in contrast to the previous illustration. He holds a flintlock pistol, in a rather peculiar way, as one of a pair. He is armed with a breast and back plates and wears large puffed sleeves of Landsknecht influence with a ruffed collar and a low crowned felt or fur hat. He also carries a dagger or short sword.
