A Colonial Jager and a Negro

A jager of the colonial troops in the West Indies and a negro. Apart from the colour of the coat, dark green, it seeems the uniform on this print is very similar to the uniform of our depiction. On the shako is a Hunting Horn that all jager battalions had instead of the shako plate. Remarkably, it is missing a pom-pom. The trousers are wide, have a narrow flap, and gaiters are worn.
