Men of the 1st Bengal Irregular Cavalry (Skinner’s Horse) or 4th Bengal Irregular Cavalry (Baddley’s Horse) display mounted combat skills. Both of these regiments were raised by Captain (later Colonel) James Skinner (1778–1841), the former in 1803 and the latter in 1814. In 1921 the two units were amalgamated to form the 1st Duke of York’s Own Skinner’s Horse. These units both wore the distinctive yellow kurtas (long coats) that prompted the nickname ‘the yellow boys’.
