Royal Artillery

Officer in Egypt, 1882

He wears a stable jacket which is the same as the mess jacket but worn done up all the way down. It has red cuffs as well as the red collar. In 1881 the rank badges were moved from the collar to the shoulder. This officer has a silver grenade on his collar and lieutenant's pip on his plaited shoulder cords. His helmet is the white foreign service type with the new ball ornament on top that replaced the spike in 1881. He has a black leather undress sabretache suspended on three white leather slings.
