Filling an Indian pot with water from the cart

Indian Army cavalrymen at water cart, France, during World War I. This image shows cavalrymen from the Indian Army getting water from a water cart. The men are wearing dark coloured turbans, most have short jackets but one man, possibly an officer, has a longer, almost knee-length coat.

 

The pot being used for the water is described in the caption as being Indian. It looks like one of their traditional copper jars.
