A Colonial Infantryman and a Fishwife

An infantryman of the Colonial troops of the East Indies and a fishwife of Scheveningen. The tunic had chest lace and loops. Interestingly enough, the uniform is almost identical to that of the punishment battalion. The shako has no rear peak, but metal chin straps ("jugulaires"). See also the portrait of Johannes Abraham Vonk.
