Before showing it, I've done some research and two things spring to mind: first, some Dragoon bands clearly wore Grecian helmets and others bicornes. I've gone with the bicornes. Secondly, it's worth thinking about the instruments played by the musicians. This is taken from Historex:
For the English speakers among us, clearly the 'Chinese Hat' is a Jingling Johnnie. Also note the absence of a kettle drummer and the presence of a Cais Claire - this looks thoroughly uncomfortable for the horse!
The trombone with an animal head seems to have been popular: is it a duck?!
This Bassoon looks more familiar, but playing it at the trot must have been testing.
Finally, did the Band act as stretcher bearers, as in modern armies, or were the bandsmen also trumpeters?
