I'm intrigued by the dicing on the shako,I've not come across it before. Where did you find reference for that?

What wonderful uniform. 71st cap on a Rifles outfit…..very striking. I thought that covered cap was unique to "HLI"

2nd Glengarry were raised from ex Scottish veterans apparently, and trained to fight with Light Infantry tactics. The intention had been to dress them in full Highland regalia, but I guess someone had the sense to see how impractical that would've been. This makes the melange of uniform all the more reasonable I think, Canada was a long way from the formalities of Great Britain…

Nicely done figures but I think you may be confusing The Glengarry Light Infantry with Glengarry Militia. The plate above depicts Upper Canadian Militia. Do look good though!

The 2nd Glengarry had two flank companies,so you could skirmish with them nonetheless!
