These light artillery mounted trousers are far more rare than mounted cavalry trousers.
Far more scarce than cavalry mounted trousers, as there were only 5 regiments of artillery in the Army in the 1885-1902 period, and only 2 companies within each regiment were designated as light artillery. The reinforced seat is the mounted aspect of these trousers.
Light wear and minor moth damage overall. One small area of stitching on the left leg’s stripe is coming undone (See image).
Waist approx. – 31″- Inseam approx. – 31 1/2″
Nice trousers, not easy to come by, and a great addition to the Indian Wars collection.
