Officers in Stable Jacket

The undress effects of officers of course followed specific regimental patterns. The 10th Hussars' stable jacket sported no olivets (which most hussar regiments did) and had a distinctive cuff braiding.

The unique chained-pattern pouch belt is however the element that allows to identify 10th Hussars at once and without doubt.

The 10th Hussars were in Ireland for a long spell in the 1860s ; I traced them at the Curragh in july 1863 (though they could have reached Ireland earlier) ; they shifted from Newbridge to Aldershott in May 1868.
