77th Moplah Rifles


Havildar, 1905


The two regiments of Moplahs were easily distinguishable because the 77th wore a rifle green tunic, faced red, whilst the 78th wore a scarlet tunic faced green. For the 77th this was a complete departure from the uniform of the old 17th whose position in the Madras line they had inherited, being red with white facings. The fez has a black tassle not seen here. The buttons and shoulder titles are of black metal.
