42nd Foot The Black Watch Crimea/Mutiny

Postby Mark Griffin » Mon Sep 21, 2009 11:13 am

Having aquired my bodies for my event in Oct for the 1815 period as well as the others we are doing, 1739, 1787, 1916 and 1944 I am now rushing against a stupidly late, self imposed deadline for getting a uniform together for a private in the 42nd foot for Alma/Lucknow era.

I have Seams Historic doing the fabric stuff, already have the Enfield but everything else I'm starting from scratch and am very much in the dark. Regt. museum being very helpful, NAM trip tomorrow but if anyone has any suggestions for suppliers of the kit, I'd love to know! This isn't my period so am coming to this very ignorant.

any help & suggestions appreciated.

Not sure if the Enfield was around for the Alma.....Minie was standard at the beginning of the war......

FWIW, Thin red line used to be very useful suppliers.

They've ceased trading, but their stock must have gone somewhere.

er if its the enfield Iam strong for you its the wrong type


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
