What is your definition of field service uniform?

As a first approach, I would recommend purchasing Osprey Men-At-Arms "British Army in Campaigns" Vol 3 (1856-1881) and Vol 4 (1882-1902), written by one (if not the) authority on the matter : Michael Barthorp.

Major Barthorp also published "British Infantry Uniforms since 1660" in the 1980s. I don't know about the current availability, but it is also worth tracking.

Cheers
