No, no he doesn't. I'm not sure they need those hats.

Bet they would be great for crowd control.

 

For sure. Any rioter's would be rolling on the ground laughing at the hats.

Philadelphia has mounted police. The city troop is PA National Guard. I can't recall a time when the city troop was called upon to restore order. Mostly, they parade any chance they get. And why not? They've certainly got one of the more fanciful dress uniforms on this side of the pond!

Not Grimsleys or Ringgolds or McClellans. Look like English jumper to me. Could be European military. I recall seeing a WWI Austro-Hungarian saddle that looks like that.
