Mounted Troop Sergeant-Major, 1897

The mounted warrant officer is dressed similarly to the Mounted Trooper except that his four rank chevrons are on his right arm. It is surprising that he wears short white gloves instead of gauntlets. His sword is attached to the saddle while his sword slings hang redundantly from his waistbelt. At this stage the white figuring on his blue tunic sleeve is in the shape of an Austrian knot. Later photos of the GGBG show a simpler trefoil design.
