Would the jacket lace, chevron/stripes, etc, have followed the officers' lace colour in a sergeant's uniform, or was it always gold even if the officers' lace were silver?

Only line infantry sergeant-majors (four chevrons) chevron lace was silver or gold according to the regimental distinctions. They also wore officer type tunics. Sergeants wore white chevron lace on the backing of the regimental facing colour.

The exception was the Guard sergeant who wore gold chevrons on the royal blue background.
