First two pictures of shirt and tricorne hat - were given to me by a veteran re-enactor, our recruiting Sergeant, Tony Elar Jr.  He converted the bicorne he had into the tricorne and added a Turkey Vulture feather, the boss of the Skyline Drive skies.

Both shirt and tricorne are sitting on a drawing I am creating to depict our Captain George Mercer greeting the Cherokee at Fort Loudoun April 1757.  Third picture is of the Brown Bess.

Flash pan guard to be screwed on to the Brown Bess.

British Army (First Model) Long Land Pattern Brown Bess Flintlock Musket - 549.00 USD

Ordered 3/2/16  Received 3/7/16

From the website link above: "While a new model was introduced in 1756, officials were insistent that the new musket would not be issued until the 1742 Long Land Musket stocks with Regiments and in the armouries had been depleted. This practice was confirmed when the 77th and 78th Regiments (Montgomery's and Fraser's Highlanders) were raised in 1757 for service in North America. Instead of receiving the new model, they received the 1742 model. In addition the reported replacement by numerous regiments of wooden rammers with steel ones also confirms the universal use of the 1742 model in the French and Indian War. The 1756 model is simply not suitable for French and Indian War reenactment."
