Chateau de Ramezay Museum, Montreal ; author's photo) the others had disbanded (PRO 30/55/5792). All these city units had vanished by November 25, 1783, when the British evacuated New York. The counties bordering New York City also had substantial numbers of Loyalists organized into volunteer and militia units. Some, notably the Loyal Westchester Volunteers under Col Isaac Hatfield, were involved in many skirmishes with American forces. There were also the Loyal Queen's County Militia, the Loyal King's County Militia and the Loyal Suffolk Militia.

In no case did the shipments mentioned above identify the corps for which the clothing was intended. However, from 1780 some of the major units were identified in lists of clothing sent to the stores in New York. These corps were the British Legion, the Queen's Rangers, the New York Volunteers and the Volunteers of Ireland (see under Unit Histories, above). Other parts of these lists have only coat and facing colors, not attributed to any unit, but one suspects that at least some of the red coats faced with orange went to the King's Orange Rangers.

Thomas Anburey's Travels through the Interior Parts of North America explains the situation in a letter written in Montreal on April 6, 1777: The clothing for the army not being sent out [to Canada] last year [1776] and as it will be too late to fit it to the men when it arrives, the commanding officers of the different regiments have received orders to reduce the men's coats into jackets, and their hats into caps, as it will be the means of repairing their present clothing, and be more convenient for wood service, that when the army takes the field, they will in a 41 manner be all light infantry.
