Footnotes

  • Provenance
    with The Parker Gallery, London.
    Private collection, UK.

    Wearing the "Roman" helmet in use between 1820 and 1834, these Troopers can be dated after 1830 because there is no braiding on the chest of their coats and the lace on their cuffs and collars is yellow. The entire Regular Army was ordered to adopt gold lace for officers and yellow tape for Other Ranks in 1830 and silver/white lace was restricted to the Militia and Volunteers. As they are on guard duty, they carry no swords and have their sword slings looped up.

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