Colonel Alexander Gardner

At the risk of treading on the Sartorialists toes I give you:

'Colonel Alexander Gardner (1785-1877) dressed in tartan and looking the part of an eccentric Mahraja. He became Colonel of Artillery under Ranjit Singh, avoided confronting British Forces in the Sikh Wars and then served at the Mahraja of Kashmir from 1846.'

He can be bought - along with other as yet unseen images - from Dominic Winter Book Auctions for the princely sum of 5-7000K

How I love a turban.
