busby definition and meaning

What is a "busby"?

A busby is a type of military headgear that is made of fur and features a plume or crest on top. It was originally worn by hussars in Hungary in the 17th century and later became a popular headgear for many European armies, including the British, French, and Russian. The busby typically features a cylindrical shape, a visor, and a bag-like extension that hangs from the back. It is usually made from the fur of various animals, such as a bear, fox, or raccoon, and is often decorated with a chin strap, a metal badge, and a plume of feathers or horsehair. The busby was worn on special occasions by various units of the British Army, including the Royal Horse Artillery and the Royal Horse Guards, and is still worn by certain ceremonial units today.
