Description

The new full-dress uniform for commanders was to be ‘the same as post captains, with a plain gold epaulette on the left shoulder’. The new undress uniform was to be ‘the same as post captains, with a plain gold epaulette, as in the full dress, to take off and put on occasionally’. The commander in the accompanying plate is wearing his hair in a queue, and he has a coat of the old style with the fronts sloping away as worn up to the end of the eighteenth century. He strikes one note of modernity, however, by wearing his laced cocked hat ‘fore and aft’.
