Ben, my dear sir, you are indeed correct.

just a case of all the riflemen getting together and deciding based on the information to hand and best guess as to what we want.

then the rest as they say will be history.

A sad, but realistic arguement for marking up kit is of course the practical one of displaying ownership and making it harder for items being carried off ( mistakenly or otherwise ). I know of one re-enactor who went to a Waterloo event independantly of his unit and had a canteen and other kit 'vanish' from camp.

For those who are concerned, or who may be concerned with the reproduction of GR markings. Here is a perfectly provenanced example from 1810, found in WO papers at Kew.

Apologies for the poor state of the photography, this was taken a few years ago, and the file size is small by present standards.
