Discussion in 'Uniforms' started by Fenlander, Jul 6, 2010.
Graham, I'm afraid I don't know what the blue trousers mean - the khaki ones are in the wash?
He does indeed look a bit like Pike but, do you think he could also be the same chap as the one sat down on the left of my picture??? They could be brothers if not (apart from the blue trousers)
Class Paul :laughing:
Could not agree more Graham...comedy at its very best. Just had another look at your pic, your right they do look very similar.
Reading up for info on a potential build for the Summer GB shows that the blue trousers are Cavalry.
It seems that cavalry wore blue strides, but as is always the case, it was an exclusive but not an absolute rule.
The Osprey book also says that uniforms were only uniform in the sense that they were issued.
Colour and styles varied enormously through-out the period within boundaries.
Separate names with a comma.
