I'll quote myself in another thread, if you don't mind...

Here's a breakdown of what the sailors wore:

Active: Blue jumpers, white trousers, white caps.
Tenedos: Blue jumpers, blue trousers, blue caps.
Boadicea: White jumpers, white trousers, blue caps.
Shah: Blue jumpers, blue trousers, straw hats.

There were also Royal Marine Light Infantry in the Naval Brigades.

So contingents from the various ships all wore the same colours as each other, so within a unit they should all be dressed the same. But you have four colour schemes to pick from.

They are both equally suitable, as far as I can tell. Copplestone does ones with straw hats if you want to do the contingent from HMS Shah, otherwise pick whichever figures you like best.
