Royal Horse Guards

Officer's Cuirass

It is difficult to date this item as it this pattern was used from the mid1820s to the present day (see: Col. Hanmer). It is different from the other rank's cuirass and from the Life Guards officer's particularly in the design of the shoulder straps. It is lined with crimson velvet.
