1st Sikh Irregular Cavalry
Indian Army Officers - Details
|Here are some details of this fascinating photograph.|
Sitting Officer - Second from left
Sadly the details of the pouch belts can't really be made out.
A symbol can be guessed on the belt plate though - and the workmanship of the basket hilt is impressive.
He is wearing the ribbon for the Indian Mutiny Medal. The detail of the fabric of his trousers is most interesting.
Officer sitting to the right
He is sporting miniatures of Medals:
interesting to note that his gauntlet is fitted with strips of chain
mail (as is the gauntlet worn by his fellow officer).
