3rd Highlander - Grenadier of the 42nd Foot (Black Watch)


As the title says! This type of fur cap was a development of the mitre cap - early examples were in fact mitre caps with fur added until eventually the fur covered the entire cap except (as here) for the front flap.

Russian infantry coming next!

David,

I really enjoy the write-ups that you take the trouble to do along with all the work you put in on these templates.

Keep up the good work, it's very much appreciated.

Regards,

Thanks, Greg, I do very much appreciate the appreciation! :-) It certainly helps keep me motivated, as the inspiration does tend to flag at times.
