Dress Tunic Skirts, Other Ranks

The rear vent of the dress tunic of the Guards dress tunic is decorated in the style of false pockets which originated in the 18th century. The centre image shows the back of a sergeant's 2nd class tunic, with gold lace replacing the white tape used on Guardsmens' 3rd class tunics (left). The image on the right is from the 1st class tunic worn by Warrant Officers, in which the pockets have an extra line of gold lace along the inside of the dark blue outer piping.
