Hello,

just looking at the great photo of the Nepalese army on the Tundikhel parade ground in 1915 , posted by Berkley in 2010,

I can see a kukri, canteen/water bottle, but what about ammo pouches ?

Did the Nepalese army have the leather belt with ammo pouches like the Indian army ? Were the ammo bandoliers issued , (when serving in India) ?

I cannot see any bandoliers worn in the photo .

John.

Welcome to the forum.
Good question. Contemporary closeup photos of Royal Nepalese Army troops of that era are scarce - most seem to be group shots, showing little detail.
I'll do some digging to see if I can find out anything.

Google always seems to lead back to that same photo. :roll:
I agree that there are no bandoliers in sight.
