The Household cavalry stable jacket was very simple. The basic ground colour had facing colour pointed cuffs, collar and shoulder straps. It had twelve buttons down the front and two at the shoulder straps. Corporals and above had ½” gold lacing above the cuffs, around the collar and on the shoulder straps. In addition, the Regimental Corporal-Major and Regimental Quartermaster-Corporal thin gold piping down the front and lower edges.
Although no rank chevrons were worn on the dress uniforms, this was not the case on the undress uniforms.
They basically fell into three categories:
Corporals: Two-bar chevrons points down on the upper right arm surmounted by an Albert Crown.
Corporal of Horse: Three-bar chevrons points down on the upper right arm surmounted by an Albert Crown.
Staff Corporals: Four-bar chevrons points up on the lower right sleeve surmounted by an Albert Crown.
Regimental Corporal-Major: A large Albert Crown on the lower right sleeve.
Unlike the regular army, the gold rank chevrons of the Household Cavalry were created by the regimental tailors.
On the stable jacket the chevrons were of 1 inch gold lace on a scarlet backing. These were more apparent on the jackets of the Royal Horse Guards.
