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.

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.
