EDITORS COMMENTS
This striking photograph captures Lt Col Keith Robinson, a distinguished officer in the 13th Duke of Connaught's Lancers, proudly wearing the regiment's mess vest during the early 1910s. The 13th Duke of Connaught's Lancers, also known as the "Lancers of Lucknow," was an elite cavalry regiment of the British Army, renowned for its bravery and discipline. The mess vest, an essential part of a soldier's uniform, was a traditional piece of regimental clothing worn during mess dinners and other formal events. The vest showcased the regiment's unique insignia, including the Duke of Connaught's crest and the regimental badge of a leaping leopard. The intricate gold embroidery and rich colors of the vest reflect the regiment's prestigious history and the high standards expected of its members. Lt Col Robinson served in the Lancers during a period of significant change in the military landscape. The early 1900s marked the end of the Victorian era and the beginning of the modern British Army. The Lancers, like many other regiments, were adapting to new technologies and tactics, preparing for the challenges of the 20th century. Despite these changes, the traditions and customs of the regiment, such as the wearing of the mess vest, remained an essential part of the soldiers' identity. This photograph offers a glimpse into the past, capturing the pride and history of the 13th Duke of Connaught's Lancers and the dedication of its officers like Lt Col Robinson.
