7th Hussars

Mounted Private 1825

A print by E.Hull showing that other ranks looked almost as splendid as their officers in the 1820s. This troop sergeant-major wears the all blue uniform ie. no facing colours and matching overalls. His tall shako has a horsehair plume instead of the officers' cock feathers. The shabracque is the distincive red vandyke pattern of the 7th Hussars.
