Hi All.
Someone asked a while back what uniforms did the troops wear that transferred to differant Regiments , well I can say that in the case of the 91st Regt , those who transferred to them , were indeed issued the 91st Regimental uniform before disembarking the troopship Pretoria in Sth Africa .
Cheers 90th. Salute

Oh Skippy ,I forgot, the question is rather whether the soldiers of the 91st have brought their blankets? They were rolled into banderole at the battle of Gingindlovu ...?

Hi Rascal .
The 91st only had waterproof sheets I think the history said , no tents or blankets from memory . Yes , the volunteers who transferred to the 91st regiment wore the 91st uniform . I'll try and find the history and post it for you to read .
Cheers 90th . Tt Tt Tt Tt ( Austrailian talk for cheers Very Happy )

thank you Skippy

But I posted that thing on the forum, I think ...

Finally I'll put aside for later re-read ...

the question is rather whether the soldiers of the 91st have brought their blankets? They were rolled into banderole at the battle of Gingindlovu ...?
