Beginners question, I'm afraid. Whilst still waiting delivery of some reference material, I've been using the net to find info on uniforms, equipment etc.
Looking at a regular line company, I now know the centre companies had the red/white plume, the light had a green plume, and the grenadiers had an all white plume. However, I have come across plates and photos of miniatures that show Regimental Ensigns with both all-White plumes and some with white/red.
Did it vary from regt to regt or are some of the images wrong? I'm assuming Sergeants plumes matched the individual company they were part of?
I'm painting up a regt as The 23rd foot, 1815, if that makes a difference.
thanks in advance.
