77th Moplah Rifles

British and Indian Officers, 1907

This photo was taken in July, the month that they received a reprieve from the disbandment that had been pending. The 78th had been disbanded in June. The reprieve was short lived as the 77th followed their brother regiment almost immediately. These unhappy men are wearing khaki service dress with black buttons and shoulder titles. The Indians wear black puttees and the British wear leather gaiters. The forage caps have a black lace band with the silver bugle horn badge.
