Referenced by “Part 18 - Persians and other easterners” by George Gush in Renaissance Warfare, Airfix magazine:
Persian musketeer, late 16th or early 17th Century. Elaborate turban. Sabre slung very high from shoulder belt, with one strap at front and rear. Usual ‘envelope’ pouch below powder horn. Stripes on musket butt, which are white, seem to be characteristic of Persians.
