On Friday, 23 December, 2016, Sovereign Hill's redcoat soldiers wore their new uniforms on parade for the first time. This project has included a large sponsorship appeal and every last detail of the uniforms have been thoroughly researched and recreated.
The fundraising was lead by two of the Sovereign Hill board members while Sovereign Hill's wonderful costume department was responsible for the research and the making of the costumes.
