The Uniform was dark green [rifle] with black facings, rank badges black.
NCO's badges depending on uniform & date would have green, red or no backing.
Pipe Major rifle green with black piping.

Gurkha NCO chevrons

Post  pittorf on Sun 26 Feb 2012, 4:19 am

...Thanks, wfrad. I guess I will have to be more specific. I want to paint a Gurkha sgt marching some men past the 2nd Regt truncheon. All are wearing red facings for the 2nd Regiment. The time is 1910-1914 and all are in dress green uniforms. Now, specifically, what color chevrons would he be wearing? I think(?) dark green with a red edge.
Thanks again.
Terry

I would agree, dark green (almost black) chevrons on red background.

I would have thought black on red like the King's Royal Rifle Corps
