militaria item Pair of 16th Light Cavalry trial pattern collar dogs

militaria item 13th Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers officer's cap badge
- British Empire

Both regiments had a common origin in the old Bombay Squadron of Cavalry, raised for service under Lord Lake.

Four battalions of militia were formed in Waziristan totalling 3,200 men.
