Marching Order 1840

The privates in the foreground make their way to the centre of the village where they are being called together by the bugler. They are in full dress with the addition of a knapsack. The bearskin can be seen from all angles and there appears to be no sign of the front badge or the tassels on the side. Although there are few signs that these men are Scots Fusilier Guards the trumpeter has his lace in groups of three. See Drummers 1838. The picture is another by M A Hayes of the regiment while they were stationed in Ireland.
