    In 1748 Lord Anson introduced the dress code and the embroidered Blue dress coat with White facings came in and was maintained for about 20 years. When a working rig came in.
    Epaulettes did not come in until the 1790’s
    So my guess would be that the photo above would fit in the period 1748 – 1767.
