... there are no documented proofs that the IMUC
got black belting, nor would I want to see our group
or the larger MRSC line sticking out like a sore thumb
in the larger line in black belts, based only on this supposition.
Maybe not re: IMUC, but, after
the capture of Fort Detroit, there was a lot of the stores that
were transferred to Fort Amhurstburg (Ft. Malden). This
American quipment was issued to the militias in this area, but
again how much, and how far east did the supply get to ............
To do an 1812 impression in Essex or Kent Counties of Ontario,
it would be very correct to have American gear mixed in with
British issue. There was talk that the only tentage in this area would
have been the American tents gotten from Fort Detroit.
