British infantrymen in cocked hats.
This was the basic dress for the British and Loyalist soldiers during the Revolution. A soldier's regiment was distinguished by the color of the collar, lapels and cuffs of his red coat and these 'facing colors" ranged from dark blue for all Royal regiments, to shades of green, yellow, buff, red and black. Further identification were the numbers on his buttons and the colored striping on the white lace around the button holes. Loyalist infantry regiments originally were dressed in dark green coats with the above facing colors, but later in the war many changed to the red coats of the regulars. Musicians of all British and Loyalist Foot regiments wore the bearskin if the grenadier and had the colors of their coats and lapels reversed, making a colorful compliment to the red of the army.
Coloring information for Series 51 is for the 10th Foot, a yellow facing regiment, and Johnson's Royal Regiment of New York.
