Latest bargain buy from Naval & Military Press (NMP) at £8.99.  The Cloathing Book 1742.  Showing uniforms of the infantry and cavalry of the army including Marine Regiments and the Regiment of Invalids.   Included image of the Kings Regiment uniform as that was my father's unit in Italy in 1944-45.  The Royal regiments have names whilst the others have numbers.  The book starts with a listing of the Colonels of the Regiments up to 1742.  May add a photo of one of those pages....
