Uniform Buttons Crown Forces
- 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?
His Majesty's Fifth Regiment of Foot ( Northumberlands )
