There's some mention on wikipedia of British in Garibaldi's 1860 International Legion and his 1870 Army of the Vosges.
Can anyone tell me where I can find out more about the uniform above and also about British troops that fought for Garibaldi.
Thanks, Simon

Hi Simon,

The information for that illustration was taken from an article in an old copy of Military Modelling, 1980s I think.
The files are upstairs in the attic at the moment so I can't help much more than that.
There is also a couple of drawings in the Illustrated London News of the time, they were quite the celebrities.
