If this had been a photograph taken in England, then these two would be portraying the classic 'look' of 'Roundhead' cavalry (i.e. the cavalry of Parliament's 'New Model Army'), as often employed in historical pageants and the like, when needing to represent Parliamentary troops of the English Civil War: this includes the 'hooped' sleeves, a cliché of Victorian illustration of the cavalry of this period.


In English terminology of the Civil War period, these men portray typical troopers of 'Horse', of the type known as a 'harquebusier' or 'carbine', whose role was to provide flanking support for the more heavily armoured cuirassiers. Given this photograph was taken in Düsseldorf, one can only summise these men are representing cavalry troopers of the Thirty Years War.
