Officer's full dress jacket, 16th (or Queen's) Light Dragoons, 1814 (c)
This jacket was worn by Lieutenant William Polhill who served with the regiment during 1813-1816 and was present at Waterloo (1815). This pattern uniform was officially abolished in 1812, but many light dragoon regiments were not immediately re-equipped although the 16th Light Dragoons had their wide lapelled plastron-fronted coatee by February 1815, their pouches and belts had not been received.
