      My personal favorite from the 1802 Clothing Regs. The 56th (or West
      Essex) Regiment was to have purple facings and white lace with a pink
      stripe. They must have cut quite the figure!

      The 21st Light Dragoons were also supposed to have pink facings, however it
      seems they were changed to black before the order could be carried out, at
      least that would seem to be indicated by the drawing in the Royal Collection,
      Windsor. Actually Pink and dark blue would have made them look rather like
      Polish lancers.
