Mounted Officer c1910

The tunic for officers in dress uniform was simplified in 1902 so that all officer ranks had the same lace and braid. Also the crimson sash was no longer worn on the shoulder and was transferred to the waist so that the leather waist-belt was discontinued. The sash had tassels hanging on the left side. The sword was slung from a web belt worn under the tunic. Sabretaches were also abolished. the only officers mounted on parade were usually the CO, the second in command and the adjutant.
