Second Life Guards

Captain, 1898

This officer is in full dress with the embroidered shabraque displayed (see 2nd Life Guards shabraque). Unfortunately the horse moved his head when this photo was taken so the bridle is indistinct (see 2nd Life Guards Officer's Bridle). His officer's aiguilettes come from his right shoulder cords and hook onto a hook on the centre of his cuirass.
