Officer, 1771

This is a sketch made by Percy Sumner of a portrait by Sir Joshua Reynolds of Sir Alexander Hogg Lecky. The jacket is scarlet with dark blue facings and silver lace. At this angle we cannot see the epaulette on his left shoulder (see Officer 1770). The lace on his collar has a button on the lower end whereas the miniature portrait of 1770 has the button on the top end.
