Hi again
La Albuera is a difficult battle to find information about Spanish uniforms. It was a transition era in which the Spanish army does not shown a "regular" look. The main and more visible change was the use of freng-type shakos vs the bicornes as well as the change to blue jacket from the previous white (and posibly worn) uniforms.
