"An officer (left) on a charger, evidently General Davies, see BMSat 9442, directed to the right, takes the salute from three officers who march (right to left) past him. The first, sabre in hand, point downwards, holds his left hand across the front of his high cocked hat. A young officer follows, carrying a standard of the Union flag with the White Horse of Hanover and a crown. The third marches with almost closed eyes and sword held point upwards. A crowd of amused spectators backed by a high wall forms a background."--British Museum online catalogue.
