The bugler Bersagliere minifigure with crimson insignia sewn to the lapel, by Italianminifig, is sold complete with trumpet and feathered helmet. The uniform, rich in details and 360° printed on original Lego, is the fatigue-duty uniform mod. 35 in grey canvas (1935). Although the suit was born as a uniform for barracks services, it was soon used as a summer uniform. Very often the trousers were combined with a cloth jacket.
The figure of the bugler Bersagliere was established in Turin in July 1836. The trumpet, in peacetime, was used to warn of the arrival of the Bersaglieri. In wartime, however, it was used to transmit orders. In addition, it also marked life in the barracks, signaling the reveille, the coffee, the corvée, the muster, the training, the silence.
Today the buglers are part of the famous “Fanfare dei Bersaglieri”.
The grey canvas uniform consisted of a three-button jacket and two lower pockets. Previously with a closed collar, in 1935 a new jacket was created with an open collar in two types: one intended for corps on foot and on horseback, the other for cyclists. The uniform also consisted of grey canvas trousers, a grey-green flannel shirt and shafts.
