    Hello Jan * Paul, thanks for your response, I am sorry but I can't upload any images yet. The one I was referring to had been posted by Canukster and is of a British Infantryman circa 1815 - he seems to have yellow facings on the cuffs of his jacket so it is hard to determine he regimental affiliations.

    So, the British Infantryman you can see in this print is as far as I can tell, is wearing a "generic" uniform. Originally posted by "Canukster" nut I can't link it here yet as am an new!

    Generally these rules would apply :


    (a) Guards and "Royal" Regiments (i.e. those with "Royal", "King's", "Queen's" or Prince Albert's name in the title) - Dark Blue.

    (b) English & Welsh Regiments - White.

    (c)Scots Regiments - Yellow.

    (d) Irish Regiments - Green (In fact this meant only the Connaught Rangers. All other Irish Regiments were "Royal" and so had dark blue facings).

    However this all falls down when you start to look in detail at other "County" Regiments who have Yellow facings and are English (The Hampshire Regiment for example).

    Anyway, I just thought I would bore you with my first entry and start a debate?
    Thanks for at least showing keenness with you first post, and I do hope that you will visit and contribute much more in the future.

    Take care,

    Paul

    Good pictures Dirk!

    Why don't you start a thread on Boisselier? Perhaps it would draw others to post their collection of pictures.
