42nd Royal Highland Regiment Grenadier Standing Firing, No.2, 1758-63

This Grenadier wears a uniform largely based on the painting done by David Morier between 1748-49, but there were certainly changes made in the details of dress by the time the regiment arrived in North America in 1756. On actual service it is hard to know how many men actually wore the bearskin caps and carried Highland broadswords although they are referenced from time to time. The Grenadier wears the belted plaid (breacan an fhéilidh) or great plaid (feileadh mòr), also known as the great kilt, that evolved during the 16th century. The Grenadier in the Morier painting wears a dark green government pattern kilt with a red over stripe, but other paintings of members from this unit do not show this detail so we did not include it.
