Its the Uniform of a Knight of the Order of Saint George. uniform because the order was a Miltary Order

How do You come to the conclusion it was a military order. I understand that one can say every traditional knights-order is a military order as they have there tradition in knighthood.

What I consider  a military order is e.g. the military-order of Maria Therese or the military-order of Max-Joseph. These were also open to commoners (with them lifted into nobility). The Bavarian Order of St. George was only open to nobility with the candidates having to pass an Ahnenprobe (check of birth) The order still exists today, but I doubt the Ahnenprobe is still the same as many (or even most) nobles today marry unequal.
