Caption: Grenadier officer, 1st, or The Royal Regiment of Foot, 1838

This officer of the elite grenadier company of the 1st, or The Royal Regiment of Foot wears the regiment's full dress uniform. Because the fighting in Lower Canada took place during the winter months, this handsome dress would have been covered by a warm grey greatcoat in the field. (DND Library)
