Yes, they are all wearing the undress 'frock coat', Sarah, although in the lowermost photo the officer wears a sheepskin over the top.

Here's another one that looks right . . . and there are several others, too.
This is a link to a lot of nice Fenton photos: http://www.allworldwars.com/Crimean-War ... -1855.html
They're organized by Army, too!

Yes, it's good to see so many of Fenton's photos in one place, Sarah.

I especially liked seeing the photos of Sir Colin Campbell, who proved so vital during the Indian Mutiny crisis. Amazing when you think how old he was!
