'Crevatts of ffox tailes'

I've been enjoying perusing 'The Origins and services of the Coldstream Guards' on Google books - all manner of documents are reproduced from the Restoration period. One is curious though... for the Grenadiers and ribbons for them... something for the headgear? I don't know...any ideas?
Etymology of cravat is French cravate, Croat, Croatian so applied in French in reference to scarves worn by Croatian soldiers
