      Esteemed List,


      Does anyone know if there is a specific time prior to the 1802
      regulations when large and small buttons were specified for use on particular
      parts of military uniforms such as large buttons for the facings, cuffs, and
      shoulders, small for the waistcoat etc., began? Is there a Warrant, general
      order, orderly book with the size and placement?

      Did the Grenadiers, Hat, Light Infantry and later the Rifle companies
      have different button size configurations? Is there documentation for a
      specific time that these started?

      Many thanks

      Michael
