A Victorian Photograph of a Royal Gloucestershire Hussar
A large-format photograph, showing a mounted trooper, wearing Full Dress jacket of pre-1855 style, busby, pantaloons and knee-boots, carrying an 1853 pattern sword, 10¾ x 14 inches (27cm x 36cm), in a glazed frame

Lot Essay

The wearing of knee-boots clearly dates this photograph to post 1871, by which time all regular Hussar regiments had long since replaced the jacket with the tunic. The uniform shown is almost certainly that of the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars, as the only Yeomanry regiment to wear a jacket of this style with yellow cord loops and five rows of buttons.
