Tartan coat worn by Sir John James Scott-Douglas, c.1819 (H.TTA 16)

This short coat of Royal Stewart tartan belonged to Sir John James Scott Douglas when he was a Captain in the 22nd Light Dragoons, at the age of 27. It is made of worsted tartan with blue velvet facings. Sprays of thistles have been embroidered at the cuffs and collar, using silver metal thread. Single-breasted with a straight cut-away at the hips, the coat is fastened by a row of domed white metal buttons of a type commonly seen in military clothing.
