About 20 members of the Victoria Pioneer Rifles Corps stand in their ranks with the British flag in the background. A brass band formed part of the unit: a few musicians can be seen on the left. Their dress uniforms were blue with white facing and piped clay webbing. The hats were shakos, peaked with a tuft on the front. The drill uniform was green with orange facing.
