Royal Artillery

Officers of RA and RHA, 1886

A page from W Jones's tailor's pattern book. The figure on the right is in RHA mess dress. It is very similar to that worn by the RA except for the scarlet waistcoat which has more braid. The mounted figure next to him is an RHA officer in full dress. The central standing figure is an RA officer in a patrol jacket. The mounted figure behind him is an RA lieutenant with undress white pouchbelt and standing on the left is a field officer (above the rank of captain) in full dress showing the senior officer's sleeve ornament. In 1881 the badges of rank were moved from the collar to the shoulder cords.
