Forage cap worn by Private Charles Gray, 2nd Battalion, 10th (North Lincolnshire) Regiment, 1810 (c).

This white forage cap appears to have been made from the tails of an old coatee. In theory second battalions of regiments remained at home to oversee recruiting and training, and sent replacements to their first battalions. However, a shortage of men led some second battalions to be sent on active service. The 2nd Battalion of the 10th were sent to Sicily in 1811 and Malta in 1815. It was disbanded there the following year.
