In the olden days, there was a thing called the Moustache Allowance.

Yes.

Money to maintain a huge moustache so as to make troopers look impressive and awesome!

The British required troopers to look dangerous as also it was political since in those days it was considered a matter of pride and machismo to sport these moustaches. The so called "martial races" tradition was to have these monstrosities!
