Some of you may have seen this on the other site. It is stirring stuff and makes the hackles rise. Turn the volume up and enjoy.
Well done Bill.

Copy the coordinates from the video, paste them into Google maps and see where Bill was when it was filmed. Quite a long way from Brecon!

The regiment was not called the 24th foot in c1745, as it would have been known by its Colonels name.

Correct.

But if I should ever need any advice, I would at least ask someone with a modicum of grey cells.

You ask, your told, but you constantly fail to understand. As I said in the other thread, your repetitive in your questions and answers. Your limited to the Welsh, the 24th, and the need for Durnford to assist LC.

Hi all

I don't want to rain on Martin's parade, but I'm sure the experts will have noticed that I'm NOT dressed as a Private in the 24th Regiment of Foot, but actually of the 36th Regiment of Foot !!!

Merry Xmas

Bill

And a Happy New Year !

Come on CTSG. Perhaps Miss Shifter, moved his book on the 36th Regiment of Foot.

Still if Bill ever decides to do a video on the 24th, then Martin will be correct. agree

No, the history lesson still stands.

It was the false information provided in the post by Kenny that was wrong, ie; (c1745 and 24th foot), and it is therefor that information that needs to be amended and not mine.

Nice try though Bill.

Hi Bill

Seasons greetings.

Am I right in thinking that both the 36th and the 24th had green facings in 1751? How would they have looked different?

Did you bag any grouse in the process?

Chard, I couldn't get the short vid into full screen, and had to watch it in the small size, and my eyes are not what they used to be, and I could not find my magnifier.

Hi Steve

To identify regiments in the 1750s, you would initially look at the facing colour. As you say, quite a few regiments had the same facing colour. The second place you look is at the pattern within the lace - this can either be a straight line (as with the 36th), a double line, zig-zags, or swirls, etc, etc. There are about a hundred regiments and each is identified in the "Cloathing Book) which was a book compiled with coloured drawings of each regiment.

Hope this helps.
