    With his Undress cap on the table beside him, this officer wears the typical Dragoon Guard uniform of the period before the Crimean War of 1855. At that date the elaborate sabretache, worn here from exceptionally long slings, disappeared as an encumbrance unsuitable for campaigning. Indeed the war against Russia had a profound effect in modernising British Army uniforms - tail-coats disappeared and were replaced with tunics.
