British Intervention Force in North America 1861-68

 

28mm figures designed by Alan Perry
For a few weeks in 1861 Britain was on the verge of war with the United States. After two Confederate commissioners were seized from the British mail packet ‘Trent’ by a US ship, Britain was incensed and began to send British regulars to support troops in Canada already out there. The crisis became known as the Tent Affair or the Trent Crisis. Two battalions of Guards actually landed in Canada, with the third to follow, which shows the concern and outrage the British government felt over the crisis. It seems like these would have been part of the 75,000 British regulars and potentially 50,000 Canadian militia and volunteers, ready to march. Of cause in a matter of several weeks the crisis was over, but 18,000 British regulars (6,823 re-enforcements sent during the crisis) were on active service in Canada by early ’62.

The initial packs are in the uniforms shown to have been worn in Canada soon after their arrival. These are basically home service uniforms with the addition of a Kilmarnock cap mostly. The coat is the 1856 pattern which lasted until 1868. Canadians also used this coat for a short period, so the Line Infantry could be used as Canadian militia with the slight addition of a scarlet band around the lower half of the Kilmarnock.
