The 1st Regt. Kent Militia are recorded to have been sent green wool from
Montreal, but there is no record of the regiment receiving it. They were
issued 41st Regt. cast off uniforms for the attack on Fort Detroit.
So they also had similar problems with the post? :)
Most agree they went into battle with red faced red 41st'er coats and/or
civilian clothes with ribbons tied on their arms.
