Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Private collection, UK.

    This officer carrying the 1847 Pattern helmet with black falling plume wears the rather more plain uniform coat introduced in 1831 modified by shortening the tails in 1847. The facing colour of his cuffs is hidden by his gauntlets, but is indicated by dark blue piping on his collar, coat and on his shoulder belt. This appears also on the rear of the collar of the Trooper who is looking after the one of the Bay horses - chestnut with black tail and mane - used by the entire regiment.

    We would like to thank Dr Andrew Cormack for his assistance cataloguing this lot.
