3rd Sikh Infantry


Sepoy, 1901


This lithograph by Simkin was published in the Army and Navy Gazette in March 1901. The uniform is drab, being more tinged with purple than khaki. The black facings date back to 1855 as did the orange fringe on the turban. The puttees are black. He wears an Indian General Service medal and has a good conduct stripe on his left sleeve.
