A Lord Lieutenant in Levee Dress Circa 1890-1910, I think.  It is not a military but a civic rank.  Originally each County had a Lord Lieutenant, appointed by the King/Queen, who was responsible for raising troops (Levies) from the County populace when required.  These troops eventually became organised as the Militia, Britain’s oldest Constitutional Force.
