Rifles Uniforms

Post  pedroalfonso on Mon 11 Apr 2011, 3:58 am

Please, I would like to know about the uniforms of Rifle Regiments (Rifle Brigade and King Royal Rifle Corps) since 1850 (Crimean War, Indian Mutiny, North West frontier, Zulu War, Boer War, WWi and ii). I have a lot info about regular infantry regiments but almost nothing about Rifles.

Thanks in advance

Pedro

There's a little information regarding the Rifles in Ray Westlake's 'The Territorial Battalions A Pictorial History 1859-1985. Again a very small amount of information in Michael Barthrop's British Infantry Uniforms since 1660.
On or two Osprey titles also mention the Rifles.
Do you have access to these?
If you want a brief regimental history of the King's Rifle Corps from 1741 1900 there's Records and badges of the British Army 1900 which gives a very brief outline including a list of commanding officers of the Battalions.
I'm afraid all of the above put together would amount to a detailed record.

WF

Tried to edit this far too many times to put in the missing word, line above should be:
'I'm afraid all of the above put together would NOT amount to a detailed record'.
