While not credited in the source, this image was drawn by C. W. Jefferys; it also appears on page 159 of Jefferys' Picture Gallery of Canadian History, Volume 2. In this book, the officer is being described as an officer of the Light Infantry Company, 41st Regiment. The colours of the uniform (scarlet coat, green feather on Shako, gilt chain fringe on shoulders, grey trousers) are also given, and it is also mentioned that the sabre is curved.
