Officer, 1770

This miniature shows only the top part of this officer's coat but is useful in that we can see the distinctive epaulette, worn on the left shoulder only, of the 1st Horse at this time. The lace and embroidery are silver. The facings are now dark blue, having changed from pale blue in 1763.
