This coatee of an unknown yeomanry regiment is fashioned from red cloth with white collar, lapels, turnbacks on tail, and cuffs. The stand up collar has two hooks, and loops of lace to the gorget buttons. The facings are white with five pairs of buttons on each side. The epaulettes are shaped chain with gold bullion fringe and a button at the collar end. The turnback is white and bordered with gold lace. The round cuff is slashed with one button and there are two pairs on the face of the cuff. The buttons are gilt brass and bear the crowned letters 'T.L.Y.'. This may be an English Yeomanry Regiment from circa 1800. On the tail there is a bugle horn in sequins and wire. The bugle horn together with the epaulettes indicate that the bearer of this uniform belonged to the light infantry company of the regiment.
