[AmRevolution] British Legion uniforms

I'm trying to find out what the uniforms for the infantry component of the British Legion looked like. I've seen the description of the cavalry uniform that appeared in a London newspaper in 1780, but there's nothing about the infantry. I would think jackets like those worn by the cavalry or light infantry style type coats may have been worn. The issue of headgear also raises some questions. Did they wear cocked hats, caps, or helmets? The subject seems to raise more questions than it does providing the answers. Thank you in advance.~Gary
