15th Light Dragoons

 Two privates and hornist, 15th Light Dragoons, c1760, the first such regiment to be formed. All three have the same helmet but whereas the privates' coats are red faced green the hornist is green faced light grey (perhaps originally white). Accoutrements are of tan leather. The rosettes on the side of the helmets may be the sign of a recruiting party. Painting by David Morier at Wilton House (Michael Barthorp).

Spooky. I’m about to start painting up this unit.
