British west indies cd 1862-1962 ? Empty CD's

Pat,
Others have been asking about the CD's and don't appear to have received any information or help.  
Unfortunately there's a famine on here, many of the old posters who may have bought the CD's don't appear to have visited in quite a while.
Maybe try sending everyone a PM, a desperate act but it could work scratch

As far as I'm aware the sites been down about three or more years and no sign of another site elsewhere.

Regarding the CD's I'm unable to help you, but there's a Special copy of Military Modelling dated June 1987 devoted to the West India Regiment.
There's also a pamphlet (wouldn't call it a book) titled Gunga Din The Commonwealth and Empire Series with a little information on the regiment.
This image the London New's dated 1858  Bear in mind, I'm not an artist and there's inconsistencies between references but I've tried to get it correct.
Leggings are a problem which seem to change depending on the artist,
You probably have this information already, but it may be of interest to someone else,

As for the CD's, I don't think I've even seen any on ebay,

I believe for the date of the illustration the 1st Regt. had a white tassel, later on when the regiments amalgamated they had yellow.
