Military kit through the ages: from the Battle of Hastings to Helmand
Contact Author I recently purchased 10 pounds of vintage buttons. The seller said they were old but I didn’t realize just how old they were. There were many yellow and brown toned buttons that I am pretty sure used to be white. There were buttons ripped off of old clothes, and the small ripped pieces of fabric definitely looked to be from decades past.
In British military dress regulations, the diameter of buttons is often measured in ‘Lines’ or ‘Lignes’ (abbreviated to ‘L’). 40L = 1 inch = millimetres. I prefer to use millimetres as few people have the means to measure Lignes.

The uniforms of the Yeoman of the Guard formed and the Yeomen Warders also formed have traditionally been in Tudor red and gold. Red coats with Williamite forces during the Williamite War in Ireland. The Irish referred to soldiers of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland as red coats as early as That the term redcoat was brought to Europe and elsewhere by Irish emigrants is evidenced by Philip O’Sullivan Beare , one of the many thousands of fugitives from Tudor and early Stuart Ireland, who mentions the ‘Battle of the Redcoats’ event in his history of the Tudor conquest, written in Latin in Spain.
Red coat or redcoat is a historical item of military clothing used widely, though not exclusively worn, by most regiments of the British Army from the 17th to the 20th centuries.
