That is interesting.....I have a few magazines & books and following great website uniformology however sometimes it just let my imagination working.


e.g.:  By 1850 the trousers may have become green in line with the officers. It is very likely that the other troops of Suffolk Yeomanry had also worn green coats but with scarlet facings, however there is no direct information on this. 


I painted trousers blue - as it looks like blue from the paint.


I will come more with other figures  ;D ;D ;D this is just a warm up.

There is quite a lot of info in the series of Tradition magazines published by Tradition of London many years ago, but it would take a bit of time searching through them to find the sort of information you want. These were very good quality magazines, I have the full set. Will have a bit of a search if I get the time.

Jerry: thank you for the reply, that is what I was looking for. As the figure I m painting is the officer, I will try to edit it somehow by adding the sabretache without any damage to the paint  :-X ::)  ........anyway I googled booklets - 15 pcs for 5pounds, that worhts I just wrote to the seller (one more thanks for a good tip). 


Christian: thank you  :)

There was a series of small booklets on the yeomanry cavalry by L.Barlow and R.J.Smith with illustrations by Bob Marrion. I have No 2 the North Somerset Yeomanry. The illustrations show them with the sabretache worn by officers throughout the Victorian period. Not by other ranks, though. The booklets were: Sussex Yeomanry, North Somerset Yeomanry, Yorkshire Hussars, Westmoreland and Cumberland Yeomanry, 3rd count of London Sharpshooters, Duk of Lancaster's Own Yeomanry, Yorkshire Dragoons, Lovat Scouts and Scottish Horse, Warwickshire and Worcestershire yeomanry.
