Hi Pascal

Have a look on Google images, you will see that there can be a few different shades, however, the 94th wore a darker green facing colour than the 24th. I had been looking for the shade of green that the 24th wore and came up with grass green, and there appears to be many shades of that, in the end I settled for a medium green (not too dark and not too light). I would imagine that the green worn by the 94th was a dark green, something like a Brunswick green. I have looked in my books and found no watercolours, paintings, etc, depicting the colour, but in the book 'Uniforms and Weapons of the Zulu War' I did find it refered to as just Lincoln Green. So take a look on Google, you might get luckier than I did and find a picture showing the facing colour of the 94th.

Bonsoir

In my opinion this should be a green as the color of the uniform of the Rifles battalions.

This case seems very simple Les ,at all and yet it is amazing how I have trouble with my figures for the distinctive colors of some battalions, because of terms in English ...

Same color, but more or less dark ...

Where I'm good laugh, these battalions with these Zululand with a distinctive yellow color, but different shade ...

Dark yellow, light yellow? ...?

Cheers
