Which of the two colours this composed battalion carried is not known.
From 1776 to 1779 the uniform was the usual white, with green cuffs and lapels, a yellow collar, and brass buttons. This uniform was probably still worn at Savannah because the regiment came from the West Indies and would probably not have had a chance to get the new uniform prescribed in the Royal Warrant of 1779.
As figures I chose the Perry ones in the uniform of 1776.
My soldiers wear a tricolour cockade: over the white cockade of the French King, they have added a black ribbon for the Americans, and a red one for Spain. This was usually done by the regiments from the West Indies, in honour of their allies.
