11th Bengal Lancers
'Probyn's Horse' - Sowar, 1901
The 11th were famous for
being the last Indian regiment to adopt khaki, retaining
the blue kurta until 1891 for ctive service. The sowar here
is in full dress, with blue kurta. The garment is collarless
so the red facings are only apparent as a lining to the
silver chain-mail shoulder straps.
