45th Sikhs

Officer Group, 1901

Part of a group photo taken at a reunion durbar in 1901. Serving officers are mixed with ex-officers in mufti. The scarlet tunic has white facings and gold lace. The indian officers have no collar badges but most of the British officers do. The seated British officer with five medals, holding his Wolesley helmet is Lt. Rattray (perhaps no longer a Lieutenant at this time). Next to him in the old style Zouave tunic is Subadar-Major Jiwan Singh who represented the regiment as King's Indian Orderly Officer in 1903.
