All Regiments per His Majesty's Royal Warrents where to have their
Drummers wearing bearskin caps. Now when in the field or in a far off
land they may have used a shako because of costs of the Bearskin caps.
When the Royal Welch Fusiliers when to Spain they stored their caps
and use Stove pipe shakos. That said the Grenadier coy, and the
drummers still may have worn their Bearskin caps.
