Jacobite Rebellion: Bagot’s Hussars
In keeping with the rest of the Highland army, most Jacobite cavalry were dressed in Highland clothes of some description. The depiction of the Bagots’s Hussars in their distinctive tartan coats and fur caps is based on the Pencuik drawings, and James Ray’s description in his contemporary history of the Rebellion where he describes them as wearing “Plaid coats and huge fur caps”. Most Jacobite cavalry were armed with a firelock, which reflected their primary role as a scout and skirmisher.
