Watering Horses 1901

A section of the Queen's Bays water their horse while the rest of the regiment wait at a distance. The men are in marching order and there are a few differences in the uniform from those that appeared on the postcards. The undress scarlet frock has a white collar that is part of the garment and goes all the way around the neck. The canvas Mills ammunition bandolier is of a different pattern. They have taken off the curb bit to allow the horses to drink, and these can be seen slung over their shoulder or on their arm. The red and white lance pennons have been removed.
