Sergeant 1801

A Warrant of 1796 ordered jackets to be fastened to the waist and tails to be shorter. Sergeants had two black stripes (ie the facing colour) on the right arm, and corporals one stripe. Sergeant-majors had 3 stripes. Sergeants had silver lace instead of the white lace worn by the rank and file. They also had the distinction of a red waist sash with a black stripe. When mounted they wore white gauntlets.
