The 75th is an odd choice, considering they saw precisely no action in the Napoleonic Wars.

Oh Docm I do love you.

But he is right, they were one of those regiments with a very dull history.
The 18th is worst.

That I can do, but I need many more pictures than just that. I will need at least 1 pic of every uniform, for all 3 companies, rankers, officers and musicians, as well as flags and tartan pattern.
That's the problem I can't find any pictures of them. All I basically have is that picture found by yours truly James Grant . Hey they did shtuff in India and they seiged a castle full of militia you know :P

You have to dig deep, but there are some images of them, and the uniforms photo does show the tartan. I'll try help find more pics.

In regards to history: whilst their tales on the European side are lacking (non existent) their campaign in India was indeed very interesting, if slightly short-lived. They are also famous as 1st battalion Gordon Hoghlanders, although this of course is a different era.

They were de-kilted in 1809, so you shouldn't have one if you want them to match time period of the other British troops.

Indeed, but it's going to be even harder to find images of the 75th without kilts so we'll keep to the kilted time period.

EDIT: This is the Tartan which that image shows, however I have found evidence suggesting the tartan is in-fact the one shown in post below. I will talk to Lime about the more historically accurate one.

I can find more stuff, but dont have the time yet, hope this starts to help and there is quite a lot of 75th stuff if you dig deep

Okay, I am (as always) having trouble finding pictures/sources of the 75th colours, so if anyone has any pictures of it, that would be appreciated.

In the meanwhile;

An Officer (I believe)

The lace was silver despite many fellow Highland regiments being Gold.

A bagpiper;

Tartan; (Campbell of Breadalbane)
According to what I found, the 75th (and 92nd) used to use the same tartan as the black watch, before 1778, after which they added a yellow stripe to it.
Spoiler

However if you search that tartan name, you will find plenty of the tartan colours if this is not the style required.

You are aware only one of those images is from even close to the right period?

The 75th didn't wear the same tartan as the 92nd, and probably not the same as the 42nd (the extent to which they had a red overstripe on theirs is debated). The 75th wore standard Government sett with no differentiation, whereas the 92nd had a yellow overstripe and the 42nd a red one.

Your image is wrong. No Napoleonic Highlander regiments wore tartan with two yellow overstripes.

"The Gordon Highlanders (75th & 92nd Foot), wore the Black Watch tartan prior to 1778 after which a yellow line was added."

Source: http://www.tartansauthority.com/tartan/the-growth-of-tartan/military-tartans/regimental-tartans/

about half way down, just search "75th" on the page.

That's what I read, I don't know it's accuracy.

If u have any images of the 75th that would be helpful too, I'm trying to get together what I can, from multiple sources, it is hard to confirm dates on all of them.

It says the Gordon Highlanders wore the yellow overstripe, which is correct. The reason it says 75th is because the Gordons were created by an amalgamation of the 75th and 92nd.

No idea why it says 1778, as neither regiment existed at the time.

The C.E. Franklin image Jimmy Grant posted should be more than enough to make a texture, anyway.

The colours would presumably have been the same as any other yellow faced regiment.

Fair Enough
However I have still found many Images with the yellow stripe, but idk

The colours would presumably have been the same as any other yellow faced regiment.

I guess^ not finding anything else.

Just saying, after seeing this, I am really encouraged to make a South Essex skin...



And regarding the shako badge, I found out it's related to the Mysore war, now beyond that, I have no idea on what it is, nor which ranks had it (officers only or all ranks?).

I say, can anyone send in a few sources via books and text websites?

It's such a boring uniform, just standard line infantry.


Now the Loyal Lusitanian Legion, they're cool.
