Royal Horse Guards uniform: pattern 1812
An army hat, said to be that of the Royal Horse Guards 1793-1812, but with a naval button, belonging to Commander Thomas Wells RN. The cocked hat is of beaver felt and the edges are bound in gold lace. The cockade is of black grosgraine ribbon with a picot edge. Instead of the gold lace loop, there is a band of overlapping metal plates running across the cockade. There are two tassels of gold and blue bullion on the outside corners. It is likely that, since regulations concerning hats were not clear in this period, this is a non-regulation hat with a naval button.
