Indian Army Officers and Non-Commissioned Officers, 2nd Regiment of Cavalry, Punjab Frontier Force, 1863 (c).

Oil on canvas by Gordon Hayward, 1890 (c).

A group of Indian Army Officers and Non-Commissioned Officers, all holders of the Indian Order of Merit, seated and standing under an exterior archway. The painting was based on photograph taken as early as 1859 of eight officers and NCOs awarded the IOM for gallantry in action during the Indian Mutiny (1857-1859). However, alongside the IOM stars, the artist has added Indian Mutiny medals which were not distributed until 1863.

First raised at Lahore in 1849 by Sam Browne when a Lieutenant, the regiment was titled the 2nd Regiment Punjab Cavalry. Also known as Sam Browne's Cavalry, it also saw action during the 2nd Afghan War (1878-1880).
