11th Bengal Lancers
'Probyn's Horse' - Officer's Indian Full Dress
An exhibit in the National
Army Museum showing the blue kurta embroidered with gold.
The collar is of scarlet cloth but the cuffs are blue with
elaborate embroidery. The shoulders are also well decorated
and have the distinctive chain shoulder piece. The pouchbelt
is the same as worn in Lancer full dress. The waistbelt
is worn over the scarlet embroidered kummerbund which is
shown here with the end hanging on the wrong side. The turban
or pagri is not done properly here, but the colours show
clearly as being blue, black and gold.
