The British Army in 1792: the Uniform Plates of James Hewgill

In February 1792 Captain James Hewgill - an officer in the Coldstream Guards Regiment - published a series of pictures, representing each regiment of the British army. The images show two figures for each regiment and were by E. Dayes - at that time the official draughtsman of the Duke of York and color tinted by the famous English artist, Joseph Mallard William Turner, who was only 17 years old at the time. It is not known if more than 18 images were made from 1792-1793.

These drawings originally appeared on line in German by our partner, Napoleon Online and are used with permission of the Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Darmstadt. Please note that Markus Stein holds the copyright on all of these images.
