Why did the British wear red coats in battle

Why did the British wear red coats in battle?

During the recent royal wedding, the millions around the world
saw that Prince William chose to wear a uniform that included
the famous British "red coat." Many people have asked, "why did
the British wear red coats in battle?"

A long time ago, Britain and France were at war. During one
battle, the French captured a British Colonel. They took him to
their headquarters, and the French General began to question
him.

Finally, as an afterthought, the French General asked, "Why do
you British officers all wear red coats? Don't you know the red
material makes you easier targets for us to shoot at?"

In his casual, matter-of-fact, way, the officer informed the
General that the reason British officers wear red coats is so
that if they are shot, the blood won't show, and the men they
are leading won't panic.

And that is why, from that day forward, all French Army officers
wear brown trousers
