Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

91st uniform questions? Empty
PostSubject: 91st uniform questions?   91st uniform questions? EmptyFri Jan 17, 2020 3:32 pm

Getting ready to paint some.

I'm researching the uniform and two questions:

1) The rank and file have the highland type cuff on their tunic and some officers seem to have it as well, but I have also found officers with normal yellow cuff. What have you done?

2) The pipers look to be wearing normal kilt and all. I have found different colors listed for the tunic. Both dark blue and green tunic were listed.
What color did you use?

Thanks,

Vince

The photo really seals the deal. I have converted the figures for the 91st to the gauntlet cuff.

They are old RalPartha and I only needed to convert three officers, three NCOs, and a pair of buglers.

91st Highlanders, Wynberg Camp, 1881.
(John Young Collection.)

I thought I’d include this as you can get away with 91st officers wearing patrol jackets, rather than scarlet.
