British Soldiers in the American Revolution Part 1 - "The strains and practicalities of combat resulted in a plethora of changes. Generally the red coats themselves had their tails cut away and their lace and facings removed to make them lighter, whilst the brims of the cocked hats were let down to keep off the sun. Full packs were replaced by bedrolls, tight breeches and gaiters with looser “indian” trousers."

Rogers Rangers became the chief scouting arm of British Crown forces by the late 1750s in America. The British valued them highly for gathering intelligence about the enemy. Later, the company was revived as a Loyalist force during the American Revolutionary War. Nonetheless, a number of former ranger officers became Patriot commanders. Some ex-rangers also participated as patriot militiamen at the Battle of Concord Bridge.
