Mounted officer in full dress 1847


Print by Henry Martens published in January 1847. This displays the full magnificence of the hussar dress at the middle of the 19th century. The crimson or cherry colour of the 11th is evident in the trousers, busby-bag, shabraque, sabretache and bridle throat plume. The bridle is richly adorned with gilt or brass bosses at all joints of the leather. A clear view of this can be seen in the colour portrait of Colonel Douglas.
