Royal Naval uniform: pattern 1805
Waistcoat 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. Made of white wool with a felted finish, it is lined and backed with cotton. The inside facings are of white wool and the stand-up collar is also lined with the same fabric. There are four linen tapes at the back to adjust the fit. The waistcoat fastens with eight small cast brass buttons with a fouled anchor motif. The front pockets feature a faux flap which is turned and lined with cotton. Below it are three cast brass buttons. Written in brown ink, on the lining just below the collar, is the name 'Mr. Howard'.
