A Trooper and a Trumpeter of The Blues. (1896)

The Royal Horse Guards, or as they are more popularly known, "The Blues", to which famous corps belong the trumpeter and trooper who are represented in our illustration, is one of the very oldest regiments, whether horse or foot, in the service of the Crown.  It was originally raised by King Charles the Second, immediately after the Restoration, and has had the distinction of wearing a blue uniform ever since.  The Blues were with George the Second at Dettingen, with Wellington in the Peninsula and at Waterloo, and in our times have seen service in Egypt and at Tel-el-Kebir.

Riding Master Ashley and Rough Riders of the Royal Horse Guards (1896)

The officer in undress uniform in the centre of the photograph is Lieutenant Ashley, the Riding Master of the Royal Horse Guards.  On each side of him are shown two rough riders of the regiment, one mounted and one dismounted.  The riding master is an officer attached to every cavalry regiment to supervise the instruction of officers and men in equitation and the use of their horses.  It is a post, to which promotion is open to the non-commissioned ranks, and which carries with it the relative rank of lieutenant, with further promotion to the honorary rank of captain after a certain number of years' service.  Rough riders act as instructors and assistants under the riding master.

Officers and Non-Commissioned Officers of the "Blues". (1896)

The photograph shown above was taken recently at Albany Street Barracks, Regent's Park, where the Royal Horse Guards - the "Blues" - have of late been quartered.  They are now under orders to move to Knightsbridge.  In the foreground are shown Captain and Adjutant Viscount Sudley; the Riding Master, Lieutenant C. J. Ashley; and the Quartermaster, Lieutenant W. Stubbs.  On either side of these officers and behind them are grouped the non-commissioned officers of the regiment, who are shown to give variety to the picture, in different "orders" - some in Queen's Guard order, some in Church Parade order, some in Stable order, and some in Walking-Out order.  The trumpeter on the flank of the group is shown wearing State Dress - a uniform that it costs upwards of ?100 to provide.

The Farrier-Major of the royal Horse Guards (1896)

For constant hard work and serious responsibility few posts in a mounted regiment, it may be safely said, are to be compared with that held by the non-commissioned officer who bears the style of Farrier-Major, and has charge of the regimental farriery department in all its various branches.  In particular the care of the horses' feet - under the regimental Veterinary Surgeon - falls to him, and of course the shoeing of all regimental chargers, for which he is personally answerable.  The officer shown - under whose supervision the horse in the picture is being shod - is Farrier - Major Baldwin of the Royal Horse Guards.
