Band in India, 1868

The band in full dress uniforms with white foreign service helmets instead of their busbies. They are not in review order as they have haversacks over their right shoulder. The other white belt is their pouch belt. The band-master is mounted on a grey, to the left. The coiled rope attached to his saddle is for tethering his horse. He has leathered overalls, a full dress tunic and a white undress pouchbelt. His bridle has no throat plume. Just to the left of him can be seen the drumhorse with one banner visible. There is a clear sphinx on it which helps us identify this regiment as the 11th Hussars.
