I'm not certain if there is any interest in this unit of the army of George III, so if it's in the wrong place, or even the totally wrong forum, please let me know.
We went back to my wife's home town of Chester last weekend, and went to the first open day of Chester Castle to the public for a long time. A small 'recruiting detachment' of the local regiment of those days, the 33rd, was strutting their stuff - a recruiting sergeant, and drummer boy, a corporal and four private soldiers, and the regimental scribe, ready to take details and to sign on recruits.
Here they are drawn up in front of the main portico of the building -

In the Sergeant's 'harangue' he stressed that only men of good character should even think of joining, and offered not a King's shilling, but THREE GUINEAS to the joinee. They are wearing Home Dress, based on the 1768/70 regulations - the uniform prior to the posting of the regiment to the colonies where they came under the authority of the British commander, Lord Cornwallis.
Here is the Sergeant with his dress halberd -

As I noted, it might not be of much interest to you over in the USA.
Please comment, or not, as the case may be.
Very nice! I was with the 43rd of Foot here in Pennsylvania, where we have a nearby town named Chester, and a County named Chester, all near Philadelphia. Your uniforms are very familiar, I enacted with the 43rd for 10 years, also a regiment that turned our as American (Rebel!) as the occasion required. Best Regards.
