  • Thanks Iron Duke.

    That uniform looks familiar but I couldn't place it. I'll have a look at my Saxon pics.
    Cheers!

                  The private and the officer in the long tailed coatee and bicorn hat on the right, is of the 27th ‘Inniskilling’ Regiment.

                  The middle officer is probably of the 3rd Foot, who had Silver buttons in pairs.

                    Many thanks. At least I was partly right when I was thinking about the 3rd Foot, called the Buffs.

                      I am glad to be of help, and yes, the 3rd Regiment of Foot, were indeed called the Buffs.

                      • Coming in from waaaay out in left field, how about this:



                        A chap called Kala, the orderly of James Fraser, the second in command of Skinners Horse in the uniform of that regiment circa 1815. It is part of a pair, the one that goes with it is below however I particularly love the very 'British India' colour scheme and the way the chap remains very much the Indian warrior despite wearing the garb of the British army.

                        Below is Kala with sabre drawn after killing a tiger that attacked Fraser:

                        Pardon the link but the picture is huge and distorted the entire tread.

                            I find it genuinely interesting how different the masculine ideal was 200 years ago. This looks by the drawing style, to be a period print. The figures, and the faces in particular would be considered very effeminate, even later on in the 19th Century. Most of our favourite painters and illustrators are from the Victorian era. The cut of Napoleonic tunics is very round shouldered compared even to Second Empire examples. Many contemporary illustrators miss this I feel.

                            • I was thinking the same thing the other day, it might be accounted for by the fact that people were smaller. That said, military prints tend to emphasise small feet and tight trousers even today. Some of the ones in our mess are very effeminate which always struck me as odd. Of course the British army is so mired in tradition and trying to make things look old that it could just be that.

                              • The picture of the British army is by Duplessi-Bertaux and comes from the Anne SK Brown collection. Two more similar pieces about the Prussian and Russian Army are also part of this series.
