Re: [Uniforms] Help Identify legging

Very Balkan looking. There were many early 19th-century units in native Balkan-Greek-Albanian-Turkish dress which could have used this kind of legging. It could as well be a part of ethnic civilian costume.

If it has an English connection, think about the Ionian Isles, the Greek war for independence, Arnauts, and for later in the 19th century - Crete and Cyprus.
