Sikh Soldiers - (Sketch by an officer of the Bengal Engineers)
The Illustrated London News - The group of Sikh Soldiers by Lieut G. F. Atkinson, of Bengal Engineers.
The dress of the Sikh soldiers is composed of a chupkun, or coat, made of various stuffs, and of any colour, well quilted, so as to resist sword cuts; and many hae often withstood the point of a lance. The pyjamas or pantaloons are almost always yellow, loose about the hips, and from the knee downwards, perfectly tight ; the head dress is either a turban or steel helmet, fitting close to the head, with chains, &c. The arms of each are a matchlock, spear, dagger, pistols, sword and shield. The regiements under the instruction of French officers have been drilled in every respect like our own. 26/3/1846
