      The last question is the easiest to answer. Whatever the configuration was at New Orleans, that was what was used at New Orleans. There was no time to reconfigure the shako's before going off to Belgium. The other information is a matter of research but the Reynolds manuscript in the PRO might have something.

      This discussion has left me wondering..

      When the 4th took part in the Chesapeake campaign, and later the New Orleans
      campaign, does anyone know what the light company would have worn? Belgic
      shakos for sure but would they have worn regimental plates, or bugles, and
      would the cockade badge have been bugles or a regimental button?

      And then later at Waterloo, would the hat be the same?

      I've made lots of assumptions (as we put together our impression) but
      "assuming" has its risks.
