13th Hussars

Cabinet Card - no studio backmark

13th Hussars NCOs playing cribbage

The regiment is easily identified from the white collars and stripes on the trousers. The sergeants in the 13th Hussars did not sport Arm Badges.

The XIII numeral can be made out on the collar of the sergeant watching us.

They are playing team cribbage, as is shown by the fact that they only have five cards each, and that the cribbage board only has four pegs (two for each team) ; opposite players play together.

That Cabinet Card is not very clear, but definitely very atmostpheric - and one can almost smell the prevailing smoke !
