A good and enjoyable read to get a first general overview on women disguised as men in the military is Julie Wheelwright's Amazons and Military Maids.

More specialised is Rudolf Dekker and Lotte van de Pol's The Tradition of Female Transvestism in Early Modern Europe, that, iirc, deals primarily, but not exclusively with the Dutch navy.

I don't remember "show a leg" being in either, though, but it's been a while since I read them.

Good luck with your research!
