The King's Royal Rifle Corps

Bugler c1910

This bugler has the fur busby which replaced the helmet in 1890. His jacket is similar to the one worn by the 1881 bugler but we can see that the backseam of the sleeve is lined with the black and red cording. The front edge of the jacket looks as if the black and red cord has been replaced by plain red cord. The bugle is silver in this illustration. The jacket is depicted as being greener than the dark trousers, and this agrees with other contemporary illustrations of the period. The upper right sleeve of buglers had a badge which was a stringed bugle on red cloth. Another illustration of a bugler by Simkin c1891 can bee seen at Officer and Other Ranks 1891 in which the bugler is wearing the undress frock.
