4th Hussars


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I'm researching a member of my family and I'm hoping the knowledgable members of this site can help me. I have the attached photo of my great grandfather, Arther Henry Beardow, sitting on his horse. From what I understand he was a member of the 4th Hussars and reached the rank of Sgt or maybe even Regimental Sgt.?

The reason I'm currently researching this is that I'm an amatuer artist and I want to create a painting based on this photograph.

I guess the questions I'd like answered are:

What is the rank of the person in the picture?

Is the uniform consistant with the 4th Hussars?

And finally the big question, is there anywhere I can find information on the coloration of the shown uniform? I've done some research all ready, and all of the color pictures I can find show the front of the coat with gold/yellow decoration but in this B&W photo the braiding looks darker like it might be red or blue?

Thank you.

Hello Shawn......

1. With no rank badges on his sleeve I would say that the rank is TROOPER......

2. The uniform looks like his Patrol Blue's......
