British infantrymen of a royal regiment in an encampment, 1760 (c).

Oil on canvas, artist unknown, 1760.

A temporary Army encampment of the mid-eighteenth century. Groups of soldiers sit outside their tents, relaxing, smoking, and perhaps gambling. Some of them wear 'wings' of lace on their shoulders, indicating that they belong to a grenadier company, a body of elite troops. The central figure of the nursing mother is a reminder that women and children would have been found in almost every Army camp.
