Hello Iain,
Note these are artists impressions and whilst they are good, in some cases the actual flashs do differ in detail somewhat, the fusiliers in particular.

Hi Frank,

I actually don't know but coincidentally, on the cover of Ruari Chisholms book, Ladysmith, it shows what appears to Fusiliers with the helmet flash. Maybe Dublin Fusiliers if they weren't "Royal" then?

regards, Iain

Good morning Iain,
The shape of the grenades are incorrect, yes, the Dublin's wore DF, the Devon's tended to have their scarlet melton cut into a curved shape and it was worn by some members if their 1st Battalion too, but, these are all just minor details, those artist impressions are still quite good and are relevant here!
Regards Frank

Hi Mike,

I don't mind at all. I don't think copyright is a problem. I got them from Dudley Wall who allowed me to post them. Were you to publish them may be another story. ;)
