The 14th in India 1858

The 14th Light Dragoons made concessions to the climate, first by wearing white turbans with neck protectors. The painting here by Norie shows a private holding his and an officer's horse. He has a waist-length stable jacket instead of the skirted tunic. The officer is entering the tent on the right which is guarded by a British infantryman.
