1924 Photo.Bangalore Horse Show.Musical Ride In The Arena 5th.Inniskilling D.G.

Welcome to the life of Lt. Col. William Howell Buckley as shown through the lens of a camera between 1913-1928. It took many hours of patient research to identify the compiler of the large,tatty old album in which he only ever refers to himself as WHB or self.
Outside of his military career W.H.Buckley was a prominent member of Welsh society and head of the Buckley Brewing dynasty in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire. He was also leader of the Carmarthenshire Hunt as well as founding the Bangalore Hunt while serving in India.
There are literally hundreds of photos in the album, covering his life as a schoolboy at Radley College and his life in India as a high ranking British Cavalry Officer with his family and freinds during the early and mid 1920s.,where he mixed with Indian, military and British high society. I will be listing photos from this album for some time to come, so if you are interested in images of the 5th. Inniskilling Dragoon Guards, hunting, hounds, Indian governance, Bangalore, Madras, Mysore and general Indian life in the later years of British rule;Be sure to add me to your favourites list !
This photo shows the musical ride of the 5th.&6th. Dragoon Guards,(The Inniskillings), lined up ready to leave the ring at The Bangalore Horse Show held at The Residency in 1924.
