Thanks for the info, I will be looking at pictures of feet and amending accordingly. We usually wear gaiters, which might be why this has not been noticed sooner.
You are in good company Dixie, modern soldiers invariably wear their trousers shorter than the design of their uniform intended too, but then they are not attempting to look like Victorians! The trousers were worn much longer then and SNCOs in particular often had their trousers cut long and shaped to look
similar to the leather strapped down hems favoured by their officers.
