      Apparently there were different grades of hussars within the

      The Hungarian light cavalrymen first formed in the 15th century,
      who wore flamboyant uniforms.

      My GF served as a Hungarian husz�r and supposedly cut off the
      heads
      of enemy Turks with his saber.
      However, there were no wars during his active service time (1870's)
      and he served as a military cook.
      In Hungarian, t�r�k means Turk and r�pa is a turnip ?
      Although h�s does mean meat and m�sza'ros means butcher.
