Non-regulation cocked hat
This cocked hat, of beaver felt, is an example of the type of non-regulation clothing that was often worn with uniform. From 1795 the regulations did include hats, but officers often chose to personalise their uniform. The edges of the hat are bound in black ribbon and there are two metal thread tassels set in at each side. The cockade is no longer in place, but there are the remnants of a metal thread loop, possibly silver, attached to a base metal button. The hat is lined with glazed linen and there is a duty stamp on the lining 'STAMP OFFICE/No. 56/Hat-Duty/Value/Above/Twelve/ Shillings/Two-Shillings.'
