Portrait of Louth Militiaman

Unknown , 1810
This is a portrait of an officer, probably a subaltern of the Louth Regiment of the Irish Milita, raised in 1793. The single epaulette indicates an infantry company, while the silver belt-plate and buttons bear the name ‘LOUTH’ surmounted by a crown. The belt-plate shows a shamrock, the buttons the letter ‘M’.
