According to Roly in New Zealand, the award for the dullest attire should go to the Hanoverian Freytag Jägers. They wore plain green coats, with green turn-backs and cuffs with the only hint of ‘colour’ being a single white strap on the left shoulder. They also had buff breeches and gaiters and plain hats with no trim and just a green cockade. It didn’t stop Roly painting them though. . .
