Best Uniforms

The earliest Yeomanry item held by the Museum is the coat of George Best of Chilton Park, who joined the Yeomanry as a founder member in 1794.  It is a very rare example of the first Yeomanry uniform.

Captain Best joined the Provender Troop under the command of Colonel Sir Edward Knatchbull.

(Provender is an estate just  West of Faversham).
