12th Royal Lancers in India with the Duke of Connaught’s Cup 1929

12th Royal Lancers in India with the Duke of Connaught’s Cup 1929

VIEW THIS IMAGE IN THE 1641 x 931 SIZE TO SEE THE FANTASTIC DETAILS. This large photograph is NOT a postcard. It measures 6 1/8 x 10 7/8 inches. It was once glued to an album page, but someone cut it out of the album. It is from my personal collection.

Three officers, two noncommissioned officers, and two troopers of the 12th Royal Lancers in India, having won a marksmanship tournament, pose with the pretigious Duke of Connaught's Cup in 1929. All are wearing the standard pith helmets and tropical British uniforms of the time period.

The three seated officers are all decorated veterans of WWI as can be seen from their ribbon bars. (NOTE: The WWI pretty much standard trio of medals is the 1914-1915 Star, the British War Medal, and the Victory Medal. Various other medals were awarded during the War as well. However, I would not venture a guess as to what ribbons each is wearing because trying to guess colors in a black-and-white photograph is frequently impossible.) All three officers are wearing Sam Browne belts. The officer in the center is holding a swagger stick.

Standing behind the officers are (left to right) a trooper with two long service stripes on his left sleeve, a lance corporal with one long service stripe, a corporal, and a trooper. Both the lance corporal and the corporal wear the three feathers badge of the Prince of Wales above their chevrons. The rank of the noncommissioned officers can be determined by their chevrons. A lance corporal's chevron has one stripe, and a corporal's has two stripes.

When you take the largest size of this photograph and then blow it up 200%, incredible detail is revealed:

It can be seen that the officers are all wearing the 12th Lancer's cap badge on the pugaree bands of thier pith helmets. (See the photograph of a 12th Lancer's cap badge below.) I'll have to be honest with you. I would not have known it was a 12th Lancer's badge per se as the Roman numerals XII at the bottom of the badge are not clear, but the the crossed lances with banners topped by a crown and the three feathers are definitely visible. Fortunately, there is a notation on the back of the photograph stating that these are the 12th Lancers in India with the Duke of Connaught's Cup. UN-fortunately, however, their names are not listed :(

I am able to determine the rank of only one of the officers. The officer on the far right is wearing two stars, which indicates that he is a lieutenant.

The officer on the left and the one in the center are both wearing a whistle in a leather case attached to their Sam Browne belts.

Notice the hands on the seated officer on the left. They are covered with both light and dark discolorations, and his left hand is quite noticeably smaller than his right. Perhaps this is a result of a war injury.

Since they are a mounted regiment, all seven of the men are wearing spurs.

Above his two long service stripes, the trooper at the far left is wearing a metal Gunner First Class proficiency badge. It is a G half-encircled by a wreath.

The trooper on the far right is wearing a metal farrier's sleeve badge in the shape of a horseshoe on his right arm.

The four standing soldiers are all armed with Webley service revolvers. I think they are the Mk VI model, but they are possibly an earlier version. (See below for a photograph and history of this revolver.) The revolvers are attached to the necks of the soldiers by dark-colored lanyards. (Here's hoping that in the heat of battle your lanyard doesn't become entangled in something and jerk you off your horse. On the other hand, the presence of a lanyard just might save your life because it would enable you to retrieve your pistol should you happen to drop it.)


History of the 12th Royal Lancers

The 12th Royal Lancers (Prince of Wales's) was a cavalry regiment of the British Army. The regiment of dragoons that was to become the 12th Royal Lancers was raised by Brigadier-General Phineas Bowles in 1715 against the threat of the Jacobite Rebellion. In 1718, the regiment was posted to Ireland, where it remained for seventy-five years.

In 1768, King George III bestowed the title of "The 12th Prince of Wales's Regiment of Light Dragoons," and the regiment was given the badge of the three ostrich feathers and the motto "Ich Dien". (The Prince of Wales's feathers is the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales. It consists of three white feathers emerging from a gold coronet. A ribbon below the coronet bears the motto "Ich dien," which is German for "I serve," a contraction of ich diene).

In 1816, the 12th Light Dragoons were armed with lances after the cavalry of Napoleon's Army had shown their effectiveness. The British Army removed the lance from its weaponry in 1903, but an influential lobby secured its re-instatement in 1909.

Throughout WWI, the 12th Lancers served on the Western Fron
