Private in parade dress, Nepalese Infantry, 1937
I believe this was the standard pattern of parade uniform for the Nepalese infantry.
Headdress – Nepalese pattern consisting of a green cap with white attachment. No badges are evident.
Tunic – Green with red facings on the collar, shoulder epaulettes and cuffs. The red epaulettes reach over the point of the shoulder where they expand to a larger white, rounded end. The cuffs are embellished with a buttoned flap, and the cuff and flap are edged with white piping.
Brass buttons are used throughout.
I am unsure of the rear decoration of the tunic.
Equipment – Leather waist belt with snake clasp, supporting the rifle bayonet to the rear of the left hip. White gloves are worn on ceremonial occasions.
Legwear – Green trousers tucked into long putties, worn over ankle boots.
Weapon – 0.303in Short Magazine Lee Enfield rifle with 1903 pattern bayonet.
