The Scots Greys started out in grey coats and iron pot helmets! but quickly moved to the more regular red coat and floppy hat.

Permission to wear the grenadier mitre was rewarded after Ramillies (also 5th D?) but not seen the original documents yet.

The bearskin came in with the 1768 regulations.

Sir Thomas Livingston, 1st Viscount Teviot, colonel 1688-1704, sold his colonelcy to Lord John Hay.

Sorry to hear Ray, hope the new painter can continue the high painting quality your figures have so far.
Your problem sounds similiar to mine with my sculptor :(

Glad your back on track Mr Churchill, that's some nerve your previous figure painter had!

Strangely it's a bit of a blessing Ray ! These artillery are of considerably lower standard than your other troops!
