18th-Century Highlanders (Men-at-Arms, Volume 261) by Stuart Reid

By Stuart Reid

The recent forty third Regiment shaped in 1739 not just wore bonnets, yet had brief jackets as opposed to coats, and belted plaids rather than breeches. as well as their firelocks and bayonets they have been armed with Scots broadswords, pistols and dirks. within the early days some of them may also have carried round shields or objectives. The British military used to be by no means to be an analogous back. Stuart Reid explores the heritage, garments and gear of the 18th-century Highland regiments, in a textual content complemented through a large number of photos and illustrations, together with complete color plates.
