In Camp, c1910

The tunic worn by these men differs from that worn by the Mounted Troop Sergeant-Major 1897. Although it is very smart it is in fact an undress frock. It is blue with white collar and shoulder straps. The cuffs are decorated with a white trefoil. There are seven white metal buttons down the front, two on each cuff, one on each shoulder strap and one on each breast pocket. The mounted TSM has an Austrian knot on his sleeve, piping down the front edge and no breast pockets. They are mostly wearing a blue and white pillbox cap. A sergeant, wearing a pouchbelt, and an officer with a cane unde his arm, in the background, have wider cap-bands of silver lace. The trooper nearest us has a white helmet on his knee.
