Service Dress 1914

The Scots Greys advance in line, perhaps for a public demonstration, shortly before going to Belgium in 1914. They wear their khaki service dress with leather bandoliers across their chests and khaki caps. The officers have the lapelled collar on their tunics, with shirt and tie showing. The men do not appear to have rifles with them although the nearest man in the front rank has something strapped to his off side, too long for a rifle. The staff sergeant behind him would be armed the same as the men and he has no visible firearm.
