Caption: Grenadier, 24th (the 2nd Warwickshire) Regiment of Foot, 1840

This grenadier wears the summer full dress uniform. White trousers were worn in summer, dark grey with red piping in winter. A detachment of the 24th fought at Saint-Denis in November 1837. The Incorporated Militia units raised in Canada during 1837-1838 had similar uniforms. The Canadians had their cuffs and collars in dark blue instead of green. (DND Library)
