British Greatcoats

Pedro,
These are taken these from MAA196, maybe not be a lot of help, good illustrations of the ordinary soldiers greatcoat for the period between the Napoleonic and Crimean wars are surprisingly hard to find.
Iím not sure regarding any changes of †the style of the greatcoat for the period between the 1815-60.
Itís an item of clothing that many authors have barely bothered to mention. †For example they may mention that in 1802 officers had dark blue double breasted greatcoats that changed to grey around 1811, never bothering to go into any greater detail.
Iím in the process of transferring files to a new computer which is taking for ever and Wndows 8 is driving me nuts.
Once Iíve completed that task, I may find something a little more detailed..

Pedro,
Have tried archive.org, avaxhome.cc/ebooks and even google books. †
Google have a few free downloads of †IX century regulations, its a little hit and miss with many books unavailable for downloading or even reading. †
Not sure it this is a location issue, many sites in the US, and other nations, restrict foreign IP addresses but you may be able to use a proxy to gain access.
Anything specific and I will try and help if I can, but Iím not an expert.
Regards
Wf
