Particularly suited for HM 22nd (The Cheshire) Regiment in Scinde 1843. For officers use GAPS 3 below. The exact dress of some of the Queen's regiments concerned in the Gwalior Campaign (also 1843) is unknown, although they might not have carried knapsacks like HM 22nd in Scinde. 

GAPS 2 British Line Infantry, firing line, flank company coatees, peaked Kilmarnock forage caps (older pattern), quilted cover and neck curtain, knapsacks. (8 figs). (£14.00).

GAPS 3 British Line Infantry Command, company officer and two ensigns, in shell jackets and forage caps. (3 figs). (£5.25). 

Suitable for a great many Queen's regiments in most hot weather theatres between 1840 and 1860, since officers often wore shell jackets, (in order to preserve their expensive, tailored coatees), even when the rank and file were turned out in issued coatees. Ideal for HM 22nd (see GAPS 1 and GAPS 2) or HM 41st (GAPS 11 and 12). Note please that the flagsheet (IDM 04) and the 'finials', i.e. the spear heads and tasseled cords, (THEM 12), are separate items.
