Rascal

As I stated on an earlier post, the frock tunics were made plain without regimental embellishments so that new tunics could be issued en masse to units as they came into theatre or required replacement. It was up to the regimental tailor and his staff to add the cuffs and collars - sometimes time was against them to include all the niceties of as stated in dress regulations. We also looking at the rough and tumble of operational soldiering in the field and it was not 'parade ground' soldiering.

Thank you Kenny, but I also thought that some regiments wore only their distinctive colors on any part of their frocks, by "esprit de corps ", to distinguish themselves from other regiments who had the same distinctive color ...No ?

I think I remember now, for what is the distinctive blue color, there were royal blue (dark blue) for the royal regiments and ordinary blue for non-royal regiments with blue facing...

There is also other memento that has just happened to me alas Sad

Several regiments had distinctive yellow color, but they differed in tone (lighter or darker) of this color,I do recall me what regiments Sad

the 57th facings as 'bright' yellow What is this? Lemon yellow? Less dark than the other battalion of yellow with yellow facing?

Pascal,

I seem to remember a report, which may have been either in The London Gazette or The Times which details the stores lost in the sinking of The Clyde. I am fairly certain included in the losses were collar and cuff facings. I will endeavour to find it as it obviously fits in with Kenny's mention of the frocks being plain which might account for some of the anomalies we see in contemporary photographs.

Yes thank you John, this is like the 8th Hussars (or 11 th Hussars?) At the Battle of Balaclava which had no pelisses because the boat that carried, had sunk!
