When Fort Oswego surrendered to French forces under Montcalm on August 14 1756, two british-american line infantry regiments, the »50th (Shirley's) Regiment of Foot« and »51st (Pepperrel's) Regiment of Foot«, marched into captivity and were subsequently disbanded on December 22 1756. With two of its more senior regiments gone, in January 1757, the »53rd (Napier's) Regiment of Foot«, raised in Leeds in March 1755, was re-numbered »51st Regiment of Foot«. In 1758, colonel Brudenell was given command of the regiment now designated »51st (Brudenell's) Regiment of Foot«. During the Seven Years' War, the 51st Foot fought at Minden, Korbach, Kloster Kamp, and Vellinghausen.

The 54 mm Tradition toy soldiers pictured above are wearing the red coat with gosling green facings and breeches. The tricorne, cuffs, lapels, and waistcoat are laced white, and the hat sports a black cockade.
