Additional Images

Officer, 1st Battalion The Royal Scots (Lothian Regiment), 1895 (c)

Glass negative, W Gregory and Company, 51 Strand, London, 1895 (c).

This image comes from a collection of glass plate negatives associated with William Gregory and Company. The negatives depict the British Army, including some members of the colonial forces, 'at home' in Britain during the 1890s.

As well as being intimate portraits of soldiers from this era, the images provide detailed illustrations of uniforms worn during the high point of military tailoring.

The officer is pictured wearing a peaked pillbox forage cap with a gilt regimental star on the front. The blue cloth cap has a band of red, white and green squares. The top is decorated with black mohair lace and button and there is gold braid around the peak. His hussar-style jacket has braiding and loops across the chest, and is worn over tartan trews. His sword is attached to the slings of his sword belt.

One of a collection of 280 glass negatives, associated with W Gregory and Company, London, and F G O Stuart, 1892 (c)-1900.
