Notes
Content: Title from folder.
Content: Written on mount: "Oct. 27, 1860" Printed on border: "The authorities at the Horse Guards have decided on discontinuing the ugly and cumbersome shako worn in the army, and substituting in place of it a headdress of a much lighter and somewhat more ornamental character, not unlike the large-peaked forage-caps worn by several of the volunteer rifle corps, though the crown is somewhat higher. The weight of the cap is much less than that of the present unwieldy shako." Includes additional text.
