Royal Navy Uniforms: Extant Garments Album

Lieutenant's Epaulette, Pattern 1812-25 (pre conservation)

This is a new addition to our Well-Dressed Men album, which until now featured caricatures and paintings of what our favorite Royal Navy officers and sailors wore during the Napoleonic Wars. Thanks to the excellent resources at the National Maritime Museum, the album now includes photographs of original garments from the period. Many of these uniforms belonged to famous heroes of the day.
