2nd Punjab Infantry

Group Photo, 1890 (Detail)

The uniforms here are basically drab with black facings and black patent leather belts. The three British officers seated in the middle are of three different ranks shown by their sleeve decoration. The one on the left is a Captain having some curled braid around the drab silk Austrian knot, next to him is the most senior officer wearing the more elaborate field officer's cuff. Then, on the right is a Lieutenant with no braid around his Austrian knot. Behind them are two Indian officers holding the regimental colours and in the middle, the bass drummer.
