    Hanover Guards Help

    Recommended Posts


    Were the Hanover Guards around during the 1770's and if so where were they located. I'm also looking for a picture of what a Hanover officers redcoat during that time. I can't find anything on the web.

    Thanks Peter :beer:

    Here are a list of websites that I found on Hanover.

    8th Kings Regiment of Foot


    I guess they were in the American Revolution.


    Uniform Details



    A picture from the book American Heritage the American Revolution p170

    This British officer's uniform coat is faced with dark blue of the house of Hanover, indicating that he belongs to a Royal Regiment. The coat's knee-length skirts are turned back for greater ease in marching.
