Pete, Sorry you didn't get it, but I agree one from the 1905 celebration would be a nice piece. Just a little FYI. The marines during the AWI wore a standard infantry style uniform of tricorn hat, red coat faced white and white small clothes, with the grenadier company wearing a bearskin and the light company the a LI cap. The grenadier and light company were part of the contingent marching to Concord. Major Pitcairn of the 7th Marines, was second in command and lead the advance party of LI which actually faced the militia at Lexington Green where it all started.
