Re: Documenting The 18th Century Welsh Shepherd's "Coat Frock".

this is an image of a Smithfield Drover, but their clothing would have been similar as both were out in all weathers.

Re: The 1812 War Society (UK)

If its okay with you I'll raise the concept of us forming part of the Crown Forces when we hold our AGM.

We in the 41st Foot have been promoting the War since we were formed in 2002. We hope to travel out for some of the 200 celebrations.
