epub 18th-Century Highlanders epub

by Stuart Reid

The new 43rd Regiment formed in 1739 not only wore bonnets, but had short jackets in place of coats, and belted plaids instead of breeches. In addition to their firelocks and bayonets they were armed with Scots broadswords, pistols and dirks. In the early days a few of them may even have carried circular shields or targets. The British Army was never to be the same again. Stuart Reid explores the history, clothing and equipment of the 18th-century Highland regiments, and explores various battles, such as the Black Watch Mutiny of 1743 and the Jaconite Rising of 1745, in a text complemented by a multitude of photographs and illustrations, including full colour plates.
