Unidentified Officer of a Royal Regiment of Foot, 1760 (c).

Oil on canvas by Tilly Kettle (1735-1786), 1760 (c).

The dark blue facings or collar and cuffs of this unknown sitter's uniform indicate that he served with a 'Royal' Regiment of Foot, one that is authorised to bear the words 'Queen's', 'King's' or 'Royal' in its title. The gorget and crimson sash distinguish him as an officer, while the manner in which the sash is worn across the chest rather than round the waist, together with the absence of epaulettes, suggest that the uniform pre-dates the Royal Clothing Warrant of 1768.
