A three-quarter-length portrait to the right, in flag officer's full-dress uniform of 1748–1767. He wears a white waistcoat richly embroidered in gold and a white dress wig. He holds his sword with his left hand and has his hat under his left arm. Naval officers' uniform was only introduced in 1748 and this portrait is a good example showing the first flag officer's full dress pattern. In the right background is Byng's flagship.
