Regiment on Parade 1914

The mounted parade in Lucknow was probably the last time the regiment appeared all together in dress uniform. In India a white helmet was worn instead of the busby. The four squadrons are formed in columns with A Squadron on the right of the picture, mounted on grey horses. The band is to the left also mounted on greys. The Commanding Officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Mussenden is out in front of the parade with his trumpeter directly behind him. Both are on grey horses. The trumpeter wears a white pouch-belt as do the members of the band; this item was discontinued in 1902 for other ranks but retained for musicians.
