Topical but a little behind the times.
An officer of the Tibetan Army 1924.
The officer concerned wore a long pigtail hanging down his back.

I believe the Tibetans were still wearing pigtails in 1950. I didn't think they wore peaked caps, just Wolsey type sun helmets, although a couple were shown wearing the British Brodie steel helmet in Seven Years In Tibet, which is basically where my knowledge of Tibetan uniforms primarily came from until I ran across Sean here.
