Great collection of images. Amazingly this is only scratching the surface as well!
A quick scan through them raises lots of points of interest. The Guards Sergeant still seems to use a chain of yellow metal for the brush and pricker rather than pipe clayed piece of leather. Again, no evidence of buff faced units with buff coloured belts, ochre/buff coloured belts seem to be unique to the RHG by this period.
