A sergeant and bandsman of the 2nd Battalion, the King's Own Scottish Borderers. The seated sergeant wears the
crossed rifle and crown badge of best shot in his c
ompany. The bandsman has one good conduct stripe on his left cuff.
The 2nd battalion was in India from c. 1890 to c. 1904 and took part in the Chitral Expedition (1895) and the Tirah
Campaign (1897). Being that neither man in wearing the India General Service Medal leads me to postulate that the
photo was taken not long after the battalion's arrival in India c. 1890.
