Royal Naval uniform: pattern 1774
|Description||This waistcoat for a captain would have been worn with both dress and undress uniform, as would white breeches. It is of white wool with a felted finish and fastens with 12 brass buttons which are die-stamped with the fouled anchor motif. In common with the coats of the period, the waistcoat also features three-point pocket flaps with three buttons. The waistcoat is lined with white flannel which would certainly have provided extra warmth.|
|Date made||circa 1774|
