Association of Crown Forces 1776 to change their persona

From their Facebook page
'Our appearance at The American Museum in Britain on the weekend of July 4th/5th sees our final attendance in the guise of the Coldstream Guards before our reappearance in the uniforms of the 5th Foot, a massive project that has combined all the dedication, talents and efforts of the members over the past three years. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the friends, members and former members of the Society who have supported us since our formation in 1982 and we look forward to seeing you and our new friends as the 5th Regiment of Foot in the future.'
