Each pattern of lance cap is fully described, including the type of materials used, with each individual component part of the head-dress being specified for both the officers and other ranks pattern of cap, together with the method of assembly. The head-dress includes the 1856 pattern lance cap as worn by many of these regiments prior to 1856, a condensed history of each regiment, accompanied by an account of the full dress uniform worn by the officers of these regiments c. 1900.
