They were drawn from the battalion so would have the same headgear (and coat and trouser colour . . .) as the rest of the battalion, right?

Thanks in advance,

The labor portion of the crew would be from the battalion wearing the battalion garb. The gunners are from the artillery branch and would be dressed like standard artillerist with the red shoulder straps.
I did them 2 and 2 per gun. Realistically it would 1 gunner and 3 labors in actual men ratio but it looks funny when only 4 figs to a gun and not actual 8 ( 2 or 3 gunners and bal labor).
