42nd Royal Highland Regiment Battalion Coy Standing Make Ready, 1758-63

When the regiment arrived in North America it immediately started training for fighting in the frontier forests. The reality of fighting in this undeveloped environment required some modification to the usual full dress of the Highland troops, including then wearing of Indian style leggings made of blue wool to protect the lower legs and the use of the feilidh-beag, or little wrap, rather than the full belted plaid as issued. Although this kilt was in the dark green government pattern, because of the use of natural dyes it may not have been as vibrant as the ones known today. The battalion and light companies wore a dark blue woolen bonnet with a red band, often decorated with a tuft made of black bear skin.
