The reverse view of line infantry Grenadier.  His equipment is visible in this view.  He has the musket slung over his shoulder with backpack haversack and musket ball pouch.  His hair is done up in a que, a pony tail of sorts and then stuffed under his mitered cap.  He looks like a hardy backwoods provincial, ready for the French and Indians.  From the Jersey blues service record,he would need to be ready.

He stands at ease.  Deerskin breeches cover his uniform trousers for moving through through the thick underbrush in the great northwoods.
