Field Officer's Sleeve Decoration c1839

This close up of the uniform shows the elaborate Russia braiding on a senior officer's sleeve. The braiding is based around a single strip of French lace and the buff facings are mostly concealed by the braid. Also the pattern of gold lace on the dark blue trousers is to be seen here.
