    ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
    All human ills he can subdue,
    Or with a bauble or medal
    Can win mans heart for you;
    And many a blessing know to stew
    To make a megloamaniac bright;
    Give honour to the dainty Corse,

      Hello, my first post here. I am English and have a great interest in Military history. I am a former soldier and have been carrying out extensive research into my grandfather and great grandfathers army record.

      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

      • 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.

          Do you know what thread, page or post number that the picture was on? Oh! And thanks for the rep

              Very nice. Thank you for posting this. I´ve read about them and their engagement at Montmirail.

                        • Hello, my name is Carl, & this is my first post. My option for an interesting uniform is the Spanish "ALMANSA DRAGOONS" 1804 to 1814. I like this uniform so much that I have made two conversions of it, one in 54mm & one in 1/12th scale. Carl T

                            • How about this one - the world's first fly boys - the Corps d’Aerostatier = the French balloon corps. My drawing represents Captain Coutelle. who was in command of four balloons. The hat was worn fore and aft like the RN and for the same reason to avoid collision with rigging. On turn backs had a small orange balloon with a white outline.
