Olga's regiment was the 3rd Hussars.  They had sky blue uniforms, I believe.  I'm at work right now, but when I get home later tonight I can post a colorized postcard of Olga on a horse reviewing her regiment.  You can sometimes find this card if you do an ebay search for "Grand Duchess Olga."

Hope this helps

There are lots of pictures of Olga in uniform.  The tunic was sky blue with gold braiding and the pants (in her case, skirt) was a dark red.

Ferngully,

I uploaded my image of the postcard to my photobucket account last night, but I couldn't get it to post here.  If you're still interested in seeing it, I'll send you the virtual link in a PM.

Are there any pictures of Olga in her regimental uniform where she's standing alone?  What I mean is, are there any like this:



This is Maria by the way.

I have a few.  There are some of her on horseback and two from the set with Tatiana of her alone.

I can really see the resemblance to Nicholas in the last photo of Olga.
It is a  beautiful picture of her.

Yes, her face looks absolutely beautiful in that last pic.  And she wears that uniform so well.  Her figure is so thin and she manages to look so wonderfully feminine.  In the pictures of her on the horse reviewing the regiment the uniform just flows so daintily on her.  Gorgeous!
