Sergeant-Major and Drill Sergeant 1862

The man on the right is Sergeant-Major Edmunds who is the subject of Sergeant-Major 1856. Here, he is without his beard, and in the single-breasted tunic that replaced the first pattern. His ranks badges are still the same and he has large cuff flaps to accommodate the extra gold lace that surrounds the three buttons. There is also a double row of gold lace around the top of the blue cuff. His collar is well covered with gold lace and has a silver thistle badge embroidered on it. The drill sergeant on the left has a star badge on his gold collar and no lace around the cuff flap. They both have white leather waist-belts with swords attached.
