A CAMEL SOWAR OF THE TENTH BENGAL LANCERS

“THE men of the loth Bengal Lancers are mostly Sikhs; they have blue and red lance-pennons, blue kurta or long coat, white breeches, red cummerbund, and blue cone-shaped turban.

An obliging Moonshee glorified my sketch by writing Shams ud-din Khan’s name and status in splendid picturesque characters below it.”
