Mounted Officer, Field Day Order 1836

Spooner's Upright Series produced two prints; this one is no. 57, showing the semi-undress order of dress for field days. The dress coat is worn with the epaulettes attached. The pouch-belt is the undress version, black leather with silver fittings, apart from the gilt royal crest badge on the pickers plate. The shako is a foul weather version of the dress shako. The trousers have a double red stripe instead of the gold stripes of the dress trousers. The shabraque of review order has been replaced by a black sheepskin with a red edge, and a valise has been added to the back of the saddle which contains a cloak for wet or cold weather. The embroidered letters XIV KLD are on both ends of the valise.
