 Manchester requested drums, colours, halberds, partizans and clothes in 1643. Capt Walden also requested a partisan, halberds, ensign, and drums, pikes and corslets, muskets, rests and bandoliers and swords for both officers and soldiers. Whether the regiment actually received armour for their pikemen and musket rests for their musketeers is unknown. ​ Manchester requested drums, colours, halberds, partizans and clothes in 1643.

 +Unfortunately there are no known contemporary descriptions of the flags of Manchester'​s regiment. [[http://​www.earlofmanchesters.co.uk/​|The Earl of Manchester'​s Regiment of Foote]] of the Sealed Knot re-enactment society use a conjectural blue flag differenced by white lozenges, inspired by Manchester'​s coat of arms.
