FALL IN, DRESS RIGHT, DRESS, THESE INDAN TROOPS ARE ARMED WITH THE LEE-ENFIELD .303 CALIBER RIFLE, UNIFORMS LOOKS LIKE STANDARD TROPICAL SHORT SLEEVE SHIRT AND SHORTS WITH 1937 PATTERN WEB GEAR. THE HEAD GEAR IS THE PUGGREE, ANKLE-BOOTS W/CANVAS OR LEATHER GAITERS W/HIGH SOCKS. DID YOU KNOW... IT WAS POSSIBLE TO TELL FROM THE SHAPE OF THE PUGGREE THE WEARER'S RELIGION AND CASTE.
