Parade, India 1898

This is a detail from a panoramic view of the 20th Hussars parading as a complete regiment at Mhow in 1898. They are all wearing khaki drill uniforms and khaki covered helmets. The commanding officer is in the foreground with a dress pouchbelt, and his tunic has gold olivet buttons similar to those of the blue undress frock. The panorama shows four squadrons with a gap between each, and the squadrons standing as four Troops per squadron. The band is on the right of he line, mounted on greys. The CO's trumpeter is also on a grey, just behind the CO.
