People Dressing up 20

I will end this series with this chap. This is a magnificent uniform but I don't know anything about it! He spotted me taking this and I gave him a thumbs up and the gave me a big smile and a wave. I wish I could have had a chat with him

Il a un très beau costume.
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Martine
i agree he has a smart uniform, Bill, but the white part of the turban looks a bit of a mismatch.
Bill Phillips: I suppose it matches his immaculate white gloves

wow, is he in the right field ?
Bill Phillips: Hahaha not by the look of it Sherri
Well he's not undercover...Its a handsome uniform for sure Bill. I thought the badge was Turkish but its slightly different.
Bill Phillips: My first thought was the Indian sub-continent but I really don't know
I love that! I do wish you'd had a chance to talk to him - I'd like to know his story!
Bill Phillips: If this is on again next year I hope he will be there!

Well that is quite a contrast Bill.
Bill Phillips: and it is the end of this series Chad. I thought I should leave the audience wanting more but decided to carry on after the first 3 anyway

surely a hint to the Great Empire - from India? Yes, what colourful contrast!
Bill Phillips: That was my first though Philine.

Bill Phillips: He does rather but what a wonderful uniform it is

Good series on playing soldiers.
Bill Phillips: historical re-enactment I believe is what they would say Comrade, but I am pleased it you have enjoyed it
Star and crescent moon on the hat makes me think Turkey.
Bill Phillips: That's a possibility Michael
Every parade has to have the Shriners.
Bill Phillips: I had to google Shriners
Nice colourful costume to finish off this excellent series Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian pleased you enjoyed the series
I can't imagine him on the battlefield dressed in such a colourful uniform, Bill. Good way to end the series though.
Bill Phillips: I am guessing this is a ceremonial uniform Beverly grin
i'm glad that he was OK with you taking his picture Bill...

he frowned at you in the picture and has a couple of sharp looking blades....petersmile
Bill Phillips: He was a very pleasant chap!

Someone from an Indian regiment, I should think, I wonder if he mixed up the invitations?
