Zouaves: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zouave "Zouave was the title given to certain infantry regiments in the French army, normally serving in French North Africa between 1831 and 1962. The name was also adopted during the 19th century by units in other armies, especially volunteer regiments raised for service in the American Civil War." The uniforms seem like AH to me. The origins, especially the ones in the American Civil War, also seem kind of odd, don't they? Picture: "A French zouave from 1888 wearing white summer trousers instead of the usual red."
