This unnamed British soldier in outfitted for service in the Mounted Infantry. His foreign service helmet is fitted with an infantry style spike as well as a brass chin chain - both of
which would not be worn while serving in the field but certainly made for a better photographic prop. His mounted style trousers, spurs and mounted pattern 1882 bandoleer mark him
as a member of the mounted infantry. He also wears a single good conduct stripe on his left cuff with a crossed rifle marksman's badge above it.
