Their glory is legend. Their bearing proud.
Their uniform magnificent.
Then and now part of the renowned Brigade Lasalle.
The incomparable Brigade Infernale.
The 7e Hussards in France, along with members of the 5e Hussards, gather every year in Northern France for a week-long campaign event. They also participate in several other events and battle re-enactments. Brigade Lasalle considers itself an elite unit. They are very stringent about correct dress and equipment.
Members of the 7e Hussards in North America can be nominated for membership in the re-enactment group called Brigade Lasalle. Nominations can only be made by members of Brigade Lasalle. Nominations are based on a high standard of performance and portrayal.
