British Regiments in the Canadian Rebellions of 1837-1838
Compiled by Robert Henderson

Uniforms for the Regiments serving in the Rebellions of the 1837-38 were in a state of transition. In late 1836 it was ordered that regimental lace was to be discontinued and replaced with white. However this change did not appear in British North America until the spring issue of clothing of 1838.
