Default Lincs VB, militia or regulars?

Can anyone tell me by the tunics whether these are regulars or not? I would have thought they would have had jam pot cuffs if they were regulars?

These chaps have collars and cuffs in white.

I wonder if they are not Lincs at all but some other wearer of the sphinx collars?

That was why i was interested. I don't think that they are Manchesters as the Manc tail was more pronounced.

I am thinking that they must be VB as the regular facings would be the same for militia uniforms.
