Japanese cavalry officers


Japanese cavalry officers



Date Created


The Japanese Cavalry did not play a very prominent part in the siege of Port Arthur, but it was a most thoroughly disciplined and highly organized troop, held ever ready to pounce upon the Russians if they should venture out upon a sortie, which, if undertaken with great force in the direction of Dalny along the coast, might have met with a temporary success and inflicted very serious damage upon the Japanese. The children of Nippon are of small stature and their horses were small too, but well trained and very hardy. In the Manchuria, in the battles and skirmishes before Liaoyang and Mukden, they often tried conclusions with the Cossacks and won great praise. In the background of the picture are seen two bomb-proof stables for the horses, and beyond them some stands for the short periods, when the guns of Port Arthur were silent.
