British Fusilier in fur caps.
British fusilier regiments during the American Revolution wore the fur cap of the elite grenadiers. Three Royal Foot Regiments of the Fusiliers served in America, The 7th Royal Fusiliers, The 21st Royal North British Fusiliers, and The 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers. In addition The 5th Foot also had fusilier style bearskin caps for the entire regiment, in recognition of their defeat of the grenadiers in 1759, but they were not titled "fusilier" until many years after the Revolution. It is interesting to note that company officers and non commissioned officers of fusilier regiments never carried pole arms as the rest of the army did at the beginning of the Revolution, but were armed with light muskets (fusée) from which the title Fusilier was derived.
Coloring information for Series 50 is for the 21st Foot.
