Nationality Indian
Period c 1890

Nice example of an officer (in undress uniform) from a crack cavalry regiment (silver chains on full dress leather crossbelt, with pickers and chains, only worn by QOCG). Karachi (where the photographer operated) is in Sind province on the coast by the border with Baluchistan. (The attribution to QOCG is tentative.)

The belt buckle arrived this morning. I'm delighted with it. I've been after one for years.

Just a note to confirm that the [helmet plate centre] has arrived safely. It is a superb piece. Thank you.
