Lieutenant, Undress Uniform, 1787-1812
Lieutenant, UNDRESS UNIFORM, 1787-1812: drawn from the orders and tailors’ notes of Welch and Stalker, naval tailors, a drawing of Lieutenant Francis Loch by Henry Edridge ARA in 1806 and an engraving in the Naval Magazine of March 1800.
The style of hair shown in the accompanying plate, the cut of the coat, and the fact that the hat is being worn ‘fore and aft’, all indicate a date after 1800. The basic design of the uniforms for lieutenants, however, remained the same from their introduction in 1787. The details for this plate have been taken from the orders and tailors’ notes of Welch & Stalker, naval and military tailors, in 1787, and from a drawing by Henry Edridge of Lieutenant Francis Loch, dated 1806. In this drawing the sitter has short hair, the unofficial sword with the lion’s head pommel, and white trousers instead of breeches.
