A Dogra Jemadar of the 12th Cavalry, 1909

Watercolour by Major Alfred Crowdy Lovett (1862-1919), 1909.

Originally raised in 1857 as an irregular Sikh cavalry unit for service during the Indian Mutiny (1857-1859), by 1909 the 12th Cavalry also included Dogras, both Hindu and Muslim, within its ranks. Most of these men came from the Punjab and what is now Jammu and Kashmir.

This is the original artwork for an illustration in Major G F MacMunn's 'Armies of India', published in 1911.
