A closer look at the 18th

Here are a few pics of the finished unit from the painting article, the 18th Regiment of foot. One thing to note about the musicians; since this is a royal regiment with blue facings they do not follow the general rule of wearing reversed coats, (which would notionally be blue), rather, royal regiment musicians wore red coats faced blue.

  1. I have always been fond of the 18th Royal Irish - if you ever find yourself in Dublin you can have a look at their colours which hang in the North Transept of St. Patricks cathedral.
