13th Hussars

RSM and Farrier Sergeant 1900

The Regimental Sergeant-Major on the left is in full dress dismounted order. He wears gold cord braiding on his tunic and round the edge of his collar. His caplines are also gold. At that time, the RSM's badge of rank was a crown worn just over the Austrian knot on his right sleeve. In dismounted fuul dress the boots are worn under the tight fitting trousers or overalls. The steel swan-neck spurs are fixed to the boot by inserting a plug into a hole in the back of the heel. The Farrier-Sergeant wears an undress frock and pillbox cap. He has white flashes on his collar with gilt collar dogs. The chain- mail shoulders are only just visible.
