Tarleton pattern officer's helmet, Lancashire Provisional Cavalry, 1798 (c)

This pattern of helmet was named after Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Banastre Tarleton who commanded the British Legion during the American War of Independence (1775-1783). With its bearskin crest the tarleton was regarded as 'the handsomest' of helmets and was reportedly much admired by foreign forces at the time.
