Ciroferrara,

The 1874 Dress Reg's describe it as being either unlined or made of serge.

As an example here is Henry Evelyn Wood, V. C. Wearing an example.

Hello all, new member here. I have an original example, pic here for those who are interested:

It's in cotton rather than serge, and unlined.

jjwdrake,

You will need to use an image hosting site such as Photobucket or alike.

Ciroferrara,

Could you please explain your question?

Bearing in mind the pattern was prescribed by the 1874 Dress Regulations.

If I had a website, possibly, but then there too many people who labour under the misconception that if it is on the web it is available to used without permission or acknowledgement. So maybe not.

Personally, I don’t believe it is. Garnet Wolseley had something of a passion for fashion. It is not inconceivable that it was something of his own design.

Interesting text on the photograph though. Despite his best efforts Wolseley never received the Victoria Cross, but he certainly made some derogatory comments about some of those who actually did.
