36th Sikhs

Various Ranks, 1896

On the left, holding his sword is an officer. He has a badge on his turban. Next is a havildar with three stripes on his arm, then a sepoy in winter dress and three good conduct stripes. On the right is a bugler. These last three other ranks do not wear a badge like the officer, but all four have a quoit circling their turbans. All four also wear boots instead of the sandals or shoes that so many of the infantrymen wore.
