Royal Marines uniform, circa 1782. Dress coat of Major General Arthur Tooker Collins (1718-93), constructed of red wool with cuffs and lapels faced with blue. Buttonholes are of embroidered metal thread. Cast brass buttons are stamped with a laurel wreath enclosing a crossed sword and baton. On the left shoulder is a fastening for an epaulette. The skirts could be turned back, so that the white lining of the coat created a contrast against the red wool of the skirts. National Maritime Museum
