Westmorland and Cumberland Yeomanry

The Westmorland and Cumberland Yeomanry Cavalry sported a red jacket with white facings and piping.
The undress cap worn by the Other Ranks is interesting, as its crown displays the crossed piping pattern, that was a distinctive element of the
Lancer Regiments. The officers' undress cap did not sport this piping.

A copy of this photocard was published by the Ogilby Trusts in the most interesting "The Uniforms of the British Yeomanry Force 1794-1914 - 4. Westmorland and Cumberland Yeomanry" (L.Barlow and R.J.Smith) with the legend :
"The Kettledrummer, c.1912. This shows the last man to wear the pill box forage cap. No drum banners are carried and the horse has no throat plume."
