7th Bombay Infantry, a Victorian Captain’s scarlet tunic


The captain’s scarlet tunic of the Victorian period is in reasonable condition although the lining is rather worn and stained. Although there is no name attached to it the lace and three Bath stars to the epaulettes show it to have belonged to a captain and to date from between 1880 and 1901. The  the eight large buttons tot he front and two to the rear bear the regimental number VII within a garter bearing the the early battle honours SEEDASEER SERINGAPATAM  all within a wreatth of laurel broken by a Victorian crown. The two small buttons on the epaulettes are BOMBAY STAFF CORPS and, like the large ones have the backmark JENNENS & Co. LONDON . jun23/1
