    Ummm. I was under the impression that IMUC didn t have a light company, per se. Or grenadiers for that matter. Although I believe there are period references

      Although I believe there are period
      references to IMUC's fine performance
      as light infantry during parts of the
      Niagara campaign of 1814 I don't
      believe this was done by a formal
      flank coy.
      As for the black belts, as has been said
      by others, I would assume a certain
      amount of "scrounging" of American
      or GLI or other supplies would have
      gone on ...
      I would be very interested if there is
      any documentation to support an IMUC
      Light Coy.
