Uniforms & Regimentals  

This page shows some of the different uniforms and regimental coats I have done to date. A few are the same basic coat,with different regimental insignia, but others indicate how the style of coat changed throughout the course of history as identified by each war. If you are interested in a coat for a regiment or unit not shown here, please feel free to contact me.
