There are some errors with your list. If you can get hold of the book by EM Nevins "Forces of the British Empire 1914", it gives a comprehensive but short description of uniform and facing colour.

In answer to a direct mailed request from member sbintayab, the following are the uniform and facing colours of a number of Canadian militia and regular regiments as shown in prints for the period 1910-12. The titles are shortened to save space. A number of other regiments are shown in khaki - this was a transitional period and coloured uniforms were no longer universal.
