Until 1796 there were only three regiments of Bengal Native cavalry: the Governor's troop of Moghuls (renamed the Governor-General's Body Guard in 1781), the Oudh Cavalry and the Khandahar Horse - raised in 1773, 1776 and 1778 respectively. The sowar (cavalry private) wears his sword in the Indian fashion with the curve to the front.
