108th Infantry

Sepoy, 1910

This man is a Rajput muslim of the Kaimkhani clan. The turban has the white fringe of the 108th, but apart from that there is nothing to distinguish his service dress except the three red good conduct stripes on his sleeve. The ammunition belt slung over his left shoulder is unusual for infantry; it is more likely to be found in the mounted troops.
