My understanding is that facial hair in British service
... could not be worn below a line from the corner of
the mouth to the earlobe, with the exception of
pioneers and Chelsea Pensioners.
If the Chelsea Pensioners in 1812-1815 were in the British Army on
would they not come under the Army Regulations of shaving every three days?
I have not seen period images of Chelsea Pensioners with facial hair.
Those more qualified with the Royal Warrants may want to answer my question.
For those interested in this matter
