Many thanks for the comeback, however I think I may not have made myself very clear as it was the reason behind the choice of colour that I am interested in. The question has arisen as to why the Cavalry branch of service colour was yellow and it prompted me to inquire why Artillery was red, Riflemen green, Dragoons orange, etc. as well. Is there any reason why the particular colours are applied to each branch?
Thanks in advance for any information.
