4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards The heavily laced, tight-fitting jacket with long tails and high collar was designed for show rather than comfort. The Prince Regent introduced rather dandified uniforms for his army after Waterloo and the heavy cavalry wore this style with an unwealdy helmet of black japanned metal and gilt fittings topped by a high fur crest. The shoulder cords were elaborate with heavy aiguilettes almost identical to those worn today by the Household Cavalry.
