With an air of almost swaggering self confidence this young man (possibly a cadet?) looks to be wearing a variation
of a rifleman's uniform though brass buttons would not be standard issue on a rifle uniform. It is possible that his
uniform is in fact a miniature version of a line infantry regiment uniform with scarlet tunic and dark blue trousers.
