During the Peninsula war, Cork was a busy port of embarkation of troops, Buck had so many orders for portraits of officers and others going to the seat of war that he kept a supply of partly painted ivories to which he added the heads and the regimental facings. Somr results are poor, this example however is well executed.

There were Two regiments of the British Army that have been numbered the 113th Regiment of Foot:

113th Regiment of Foot (Royal Highlanders), raised in 1761 and disbanded in 1763 and 113th Regiment of Foot (1794), raised in 1794. The sitter in this miniature is likely to have come from the 113th Regiment of Foot infantry regiment of the British Army which was raised in May 1794 and was disbanded in 1795.
