Private Harry Short of the 1st (Royal) Dragoons costumed for what must have been an amateur regimental theatrical performance.  The printed label attached to the front of the
photograph's mount names him a Private H. Shorts but in the inscription on the reverse side he names himself as Harry Short of the 1st (Royal) Dragoons. The photograph may well
have been taken in India c. 1905 while the regiment was stationed in Lucknow and Muttra. Short dedicated the photograph to his "old chum" H. Warner also of the 1st (Royal
Dragoons. Unfortunately nothing in regards to records for either men have been found to date although is may be assume that Short was a "trooper' in more that one sense of the word.
