 + 
 +It appears likely Butler'​s regiment retained green cornets they'd carried in Hesilrigge'​s regiment. Under Horton the cornets were replaced with a matching green set. Colonel Thomas Horton (Illustration 1) had a plain green cornet with green and white fringing. The troop cornets were green with the common theme of a armoured sword-wielding arm emerging from a cloud and a scroll but with additional individual devices and motto. These are illustrated above for Major Thomas Pennyfeather (2), Captain Essex (3), Captain John Godfrey (4), Captain Elijah Greene (5) and Captain Arnall (6)
