1st Bengal Lancers (Skinner's Horse) - Returning from a Review (Detail of Standards)
In the forground is a senior Indian officer with elaborate saddle-cloth and throat plume. He carries a shield on his back as do nearly all the other Indian officers. The two standard-bearers (nishanburdars) are behind the left end of the rissalah line. The design looks the same for all the standards, there being two for each rissalah, but the Farsi script may be different on each. The troops in this picture may look very different from the idea we have of the British soldier of this time but they still march under the union flag. At the top of the picture, the band march on the right of the line. It is not really a band as such, but a grouping of the 4 trumpeters and 4 kettledrummers. The trumpet-major is on the right of the line of trumpeters (top left, as we look at it) on a more richly dressed horse.
