Four plates are of uniform paintings specially commissioned from the well known military artist Peter Archer. The painting above depicts a soldier of the European Company of the West Coast of Sumatra garrison, on duty at Fort Anne, Moco Moco, circa 1764. Interesting detail is that an early photograph of the author, Alan Harfield, stand model for this painting.
