Description

Barrell?s Regiment, the 4th Regiment of Foot, were to bear the brunt of the Jacobite attack on Cumberland?s left flank at Culloden. Since it was a Royal regiment, the drummer was issued with a red coat faced with blue. Drummers of non-royal regiments wore coats of the facing colour, and were faced red.
There were normally two drummers per company in a regiment.
