PostSubject: Patrol Jacket Patterns of the Zulu War   Fri Jan 20, 2012 11:13 am

Following on from the question regarding Infantry Pattern Patrol Jackets of the Zulu War here are a few contemporary photographs of officers wearing various patterns that were in use in 1879.

I will add to this original post as I upload more images.

Lieutenant, 60th Rifles, in Rifles Pattern Jacket
Note the shoulder cords, and the bossing the rows frogging, five rows rather than the infantry's four rows.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Officers & Battery Sergeant-Major, Royal Artillery.
Note the variation of the cuff detail of the officer seated on the right, he is wearing an Austrian knot, rather than the 'Crow's Foot' or trefoil knot of the other officers indicating that he is the Battery's Veterinary-Surgeon.

Officer, Royal Engineers, below Field Rank
Note the blue velvet material on his collar & cuffs, which shows up well in this image. There was also a minor variation of the embroidery around the two hip pockets between the Royal Engineers & the Royal Artillery.

The Army Medical Department had their own pattern patrol jacket by 1879.

Surgeon, Army Medical Department, wearing the A.M.D. Pattern Patrol Jacket.
Note the looser collar, enable to the wearer free movement, rather than the constraints of the tighter infantry pattern one.
