Biography_Major E.R.B. Barnes.-
Major 37th North Hampshire's 1850's.
Lieutenant Barnes is probably in full dress review order. He is wearing an 1856 pattern infantry officers tunic with a scarlet silk sash over his left shoulder. The collar and sleeves show some fading, but would seem to be consistent with the yellow facings worn by the 37th Regiment of Foot at the time. The collar rank badges are those of a lieutenant showing a single crown rank badge and ½ inch of gold lace on the top edge of the collar.

The details of the sleeve are difficult to see. The three button sleeve decoration of the 1856 pattern tunic can be made out.

Lieutenant Barnes' medal is the South African Medal given for service in various campaigns from 1834 to 1853. Lieutenant Barnes served in a Native Corps from 1850 to 1853.

Lieutenant Barnes' is wearing a white enameled leather waist/sword belt. His sword is the 1822 pattern infantry officers sword which stayed in use until 1895. At this time it was probably being carried in a leather scabbard. The sword knot would have been crimson and gold with a bullion tassel.

Hampshire Regiment Officer's Victorian Tunic.
A fine1881 pattern dress tunic named and dated 1887, of scarlet melton cloth with white piped edging, pale yellow facings to the collar and cuffs. The collar is decorated with gold lace and gimp, retaining regimental pattern silver embroidered crimson centered collar badges. Gold bullion twisted roped shoulder cords mounted with embroidered 2nd Lieutenant's rank insignia. Cuffs are lavishly decorated with gimp and gold lacing.
