The cavalry wore shoulder scales made of metal instead of epaulets of cloth.  These were supose to protect them in hand to hand saber fighting on horseback .  We had a speaker who collects military uniforms at our roundtable said that many didn't wear them as they were more trouble than they did any thing to protect them .
