Guns are wrapped in covers and carried on the back. Cartridge pockets adorn the chest. The first from left wears breast insignia. The second from left seems to be an officer with epaulettes. The third soldier from left is holding the flag of the regiment in his hands. In the background some spectators and white tents of the ABC (British or Russian?) are visible.
