It is quite interesting to have found
two portraits of the same man at different times - showing us
the evolution of the Worcestershire Yeomanry uniform.
On the left view, Master Bourne, apparently
wearing wearing "on Foot with Side-arms to drill"
dress, is wearing the plain blue stable jacket, adorned with
9 silver Buttons, with Forage Cap, (grey ?) trousers, sword
an belt, short gloves.
On the right view, he is now apparently
a Sergant (the Crown devide over the rank stripes being likely
a Regimental Badge), possibly with Drill duties as shown bythe
crossed swords on his left sleeve.
He is wearing the Hussar uniform introduced in 1871 :
Astrakhan busby with horsehair scarlet plume, and a white braided
The tunic is described as "of blue Hussar pattern with
four loops of crimson braid".
Dark blue overalls with scarlet cloth stripes.
