11th Bengal Lancers (Probyn's Horse)

Major Probyn

On the left Probyn wears winter campaign dress with turban and medals, one of which is his VC. His pouchbelt is the undress version with no chain decoration on the edges. He has dark gauntlets and polished Napoleon boots. The other picture shows him bare headed but with a plumed helmet on the table. His pouchbelt is the full dress version with chained edges. His uniform is a blue alkalak with gold lace and braid sleeve decoration. His boots are tight fitting patent leather. He has a sabretache with almost plain leather front but edged in lace.
