    Terry,

    If you can, have a look at the "Sharpe" TV series. VERY accurate for the uniforms and equipment.

    This is a good little reference guide to Infantry uniform and equipment of that period. Also has a small section re Firearms and edged weapons.
    Cheap and easy to find. A couple of dollars in a second hand book store.
