Captain, three years post, Frock Dress, 1787-1795
Captain, three years post FROCK UNIFORM: Drawn from the Order of November 17th, 1787 and from the ‘Leghorn‘ miniature of Nelson, Captain of the Agamemnon, painted by an unknown artist whilst refitting at Livorno, Italy in 1795
The coat in the accompanying plate is based on the so-called ‘Leghorn’ miniature of Nelson, painted by an unknown artist, when he was refitting Agamemnon in that port. Although painted in 1795 when new dress regulations came into force, Nelson would still have worn his old uniform, particularly as the order stated specifically that ‘Officers will be allowed to wear their present uniform till the 1st of June 1796.’
