Superb photo of a rare uniform. He has the senior NCO type of tunic with silver lace. I am assuming he was a musketry instructor with the crown and rifles on the lower right sleeve, but normally this was seen above the chevrons. I don't know if this was a regimental affectation or what. The marksman award is in the normal place on lower left sleeve.

I is my understanding that if it is an award, it should only be on the left arm?
