Officers, 1826

The 11th were in India at this time but little concession was made to the climate except for the plume on the shako which is horsehair instead of cockfeathers. The full dress uniform, on the right, is little changed except for the addition of silver lace and braid on the collar and cuffs. The two silver stripes down the side are decorated with silver scallops. The officer on the left wears undress stable dress with a forage cap that is blue with buff headband and piping. He has an undress white leather pouchbelt with black pouch. The sword belts are of black leather, and he has a plain black undress sabretache. His cossacks have two buff cloth stripes.
