Uniforms of the WA Volunteer Forces

The civilians that formed the backbone of the volunteer units in WA during the second half of the 19th century were generally uniformed  along the lines of regular British troops.  However the uniforms they used tended to be less ornate for enlisted men and the uniform styles remained in service for longer periods even after the uniform pattern changed for the regular forces . This was in most cases due the general shortage of funds for servicing the local volunteer units.
