Correction to 'Prinz Clemens' Lancers

I found contradictory references when searching for this Saxon unit with could wear two different uniforms: 1) red habit (similar to French Chasseurs a Cheval) with light-green facings or 2) light-blue Polish hulan style.
After a request at NAPOLEON-SERIES and a careful re-reading of the availables references, I have found that, although lances were introduced at 1811, the unit fought the Leipizig campaign in the red habit since the polish uniform was introduced after the battle of Lepzig.
Therefore the choice for that unit is:

Lancers HäT 8029 - French Line Chasseurs

My acknowledgement to Henning Knecht of the Napoleon Series forum for his kind assistance
