Royal Naval uniform: pattern 1805
Full dress coat of naval surgeon Joshua Horwood (died 1850) who served as surgeon's mate in HMS 'Prince' at Trafalgar, and was promoted to surgeon in 1807. Since officers were required to provide their uniform at their own expense, there is often a varying quality to the tailoring of the garments. This coat, of blue wool with a felted finish, is not a very high quality and the collar is awkwardly cut and turned. It is completely unlined, except for the sleeves which are lined with white cotton. The coat features a stand-up collar, and rank is indicated by the embroidered twist motifs in metal thread on both sides of the collar, and by the buttons which are those of a warrant officer.
