British Troops of the Seven Years War/French and Indian War: 40th Regiment
The 40th Regiment, which I have blogged about before, was the first regular British regiment raised in Nova Scotia in 1717.

By 1758, the 40th Foot, also known as Hopsons had served in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
The Grenadiers were part of the Quebec campaign of 1759 as one of the companies of The Louisbourg Grenadiers, the Grenadiers of the 22nd, 40th and 45th regiments. All of these I will post painted figures of in the coming weeks.
