I got "bugged" last time so will try again.

I am away from home at present, so do not have access to my military history books. Can anyone tell me the facing colour of the British 5th Marines in 1742?

Many thanks. I had a vague recollection of buff or yellow from my reprint of the 1742 Cloathing Book, but I must have got that wrong.
