Officer in the Westmorland & Cumberland Yeomanry, 1860s.

It is as always interesting to see the colour rendition of these merry uniforms, as a comparison to Black & White photographs.

One can also see how lace pattern and cuff braiding differ from uniforms sported by Other Ranks. A somewhat splendid beard prevents us from seeing his exact rank, as would be told by this gentleman's collar.

The unadroned Red Morroco leather pouch belt is also a specific part of officers kits.
