    Might be easier than me driving 15 hours one way to try and view the fiche!

    The documents that I sent you, that you highlighted on your professional page, the one speaking of the herringbone selvage came from this same collection.

    This particular grouping of papers, in the British Library is one that I have not seen referenced anywhere. It could be because it has nothing useful from a uniforms/material culture standpoint, or it might be that its remoteness has kept anyone from "Discovering" it till I found it last weekend looking for something else!

    Excellent find! I wish I'd had access to material like this 20 years ago. But, as you said, we did with what was available to us. I do have the biography of James Grant (by Nelson), but it contains little on the specific topics of 77th uniforms or F&I Highland dress. Again, I shall be very interested to discover what you learn from the Grant papers.
