    Ron,
    In 1902 the white drill-jacket (shell jacket) was authorized for wear by officers to replace/supplement the scarlet drill-jacket. All the officers in this image are seen wearing the white jacket including the mounted officer who is probably the Adjutant. There is one man in trews on the left side of the parade (right facing) in all dark clothing without sword who is likely wearing a blue patrol jacket. While it is possible for this to be 1902, I would be surprised if all officers would have purchased the new jacket at this point. Thus, I think 1911 is more likely.

    Mike

    Edit: Photo is likely 1904. See my reply to your post on VWF.
