No idea to which states these elephants belong. This is my next project, to identify as many elephants as possible. For that, I need to study and research among all the photos I have from January 7, the Retainers Review at the Amphitheatre.

Although no text mentions if the elephants were the last of the parade, there are pictures of camel riders and cavalry from the princely states going their same route. It's probable that the states had some of their military groups, escorts and servants parading after them. But it's just a guess, I couldn't find anything about them anywhere (remember that I said the more at the back of the Procession the less mentions and descriptions)

That's all for today. More soon.
