The 42nd had a desperate fight against Ghazis and fanatics at Bareilly in May 1858. Sir Colin Campbell described the attack by the enemy as, "the most determined effort he had seen during the war." This painting by Orlando Norie shows men of the Black Watch in light marching order with white covers to their undress Kilmarnock caps.
