59th Regiment of foot
I chose this regiment somewhat foolishly, on the basis that I had the flag for it, and its violet facings would give a bit of variety to my British army. I subsequently found out the regiment returned to England after the actions around Boston in 1775 and changed to white facings. Perhaps not the most useful regiment to depict, but an interesting diversion from all the yellow and green faced units.
The figures used are from the British firing line pack and British command standing. the standing and firing line packs are intended to use the same officers, since it seemed a bit of unnecessary duplication to have a separate pack of officers directing a firing line.
