Royal Artillery

Officer, 1799

From the print in the British Military Library series. The coat is cut away at the front and closed over the chest double-breasted style. The red lapels are without gold lace. He has the junior officer's distinction of a single gold epaulette on his right shoulder. The bicorn hat has a gold loop and button on the front and small gold fringes at the corners. The red and white plume is incorrect, the Royal Artillery have consistently worn an all-white plume.
