Note:
Jan Hoynck van Papendrecht is known for his military subjects and figures. Because of his military knowledge and accuracy in the depiction of the subjects, his works count as a source of historical reference. It is established that each part of the attire of, for instance, a soldier, was rendered in every detail.

During the mobilisation of 1914, a cavalry brigade was formed. This consisted of 4 regent hussars. This cavalry brigade was commanded from 1914-1918 by Major General W.H. Piepers, who is the first horseman from the left in the painting.
