c.1861

Illustration for Chapter 24, Thackeray's Vanity Fair

"Mr. Stubble, as may be supposed from his size and slenderness, was on the Light Bobs. Ensign Spooney, on the contrary, was a tall youth and belonged to [Captain Dobbin's] the Grenadier Company, and he tried on a new bear-skin cap, under which he looked savage beyong his ears."
