7th Hussars

Senior NCOs 1866

As with the officers in the other group, it is clear that the older men sport beards and whiskers while the younger men show the up and coming trend towards the more clean-shaven look. Most of the men wear the short stable jacket. Those in the front row are Troop Sergeant-Majors except for the Sergeant on the right and the Regimental Sergeant-Major, seated, second from the left. His folded arms show that he has four inverted chevrons with crown on each arm while the TSMs have four chevrons and crown on the right arm only. The RSM and TSMs all have gold trouser stripes and braid tracing the collar and cuffs as opposed to the yellow worn by the other NCOs. The RSM has gold braid also down the front of his jacket and along the bottom edge. His cuff is ornamented with an Austrian knot insead of a simple loop. Oddly, he seems tohave no shoulder cord like the others. The Trumpet-Major stands behind the RSM's left shoulder.
