Scinde Irregular Horse Uniform Group

A Scinde Irregular Horse Uniform Group circa 1850 comprising a green cloth alkalak with red piping and silver lace and russia braid work to the breast, shoulder and cuffs.
It is possible to accurately date this group to the 1850`s based upon the likeness and similarity of the alkalak worn in the portrait painting of Rissaldar Mohubut Khan, Bahadur, 2nd Scinde Irregular Horse which is dated 1852 and therefore reliably dates our uniform to this period. Alkalak`s were more or less completely replaced by the Kurta in the 1870`s.
The Scinde Irregular Horse fell under the presidency of Bombay and were comprised of two regiments of Irregular Horse.
