Sergeants, Undress 1856

The sergeant on the left is in the white undress drill jacket. He is in fact a Colour-Sergeant although there is no Colour badge on his stripes. He does have a crown over his stripes which is of Russian style. His forage cap has a gold band instead of white, and a brass cap-badge.

The right-hand figure is a sergeant of more senior standing as shown by the peak on his cap. He has gold chevrons and gold cuff flaps but the collar is blue, edged with gold lace. He has a sword attached to his white leather waistbelt. In his right hand is a sergeant's cane and in his left a pair of white gloves.
