Nepalese Uniforms of the late XIX Century/early XX Century

Post  Abadu on Sat 18 Dec 2010, 4:47 pm

Does anybody knows what did they wear? I'm specially interested in the cavalry, which seem to have existed since the 1840s, but I can't find anything about their dress even on books (Armies of the Nineteenth Century: Central Asia and the Himalayan Kingdoms for the matter).

Thanks Sean. Also, do you know anything about their cavalry, at any date? I couldn't find anything here or in the link.

EDIT: Also, do you still have that picture of a "better view of the unusual headdress can be seen in a contemporary photograph of the Guard on either Corbis or Getty Images" which you mentioned at the "Hello everyone" thread? I searched in those sites you said but couldn't find it.

I'm sorry I have nothing on Nepalese cavalry apart from the bodyguard mentioned in Carman's work on Indian Cavalry. As to Corbis/Getty, searching these comes up with some fascinating pictures. The problem is finding the right word to reach them, and I can't remember the right word I'm afraid.
