      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
      half pay,
      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
