 +Northampton'​s regiment are often said to have worn green coats as early as 1642. A Royalist William Legge was captured at the battle of Southam on August 23rd because he mistook John Hampden'​s men for the Earl of Northampton'​s,​ supposedly because of similar uniforms ((//​Men-at-Arms 014 - The English Civil War Armies//, Peter Young & Michael Roffe 1994, Osprey Publishing ISBN:​0850451191)). However Hampden'​s men had not received their uniforms at this date, see [[parliamentarian:​foot-regiments:​john-hampden|Colonel John Hampden’s Regiment of Foot]].
