I am trying to find a photo of the following person:
Quartermaster (from Quarter-Master-Sergeant) 11th Hussars, Nov 10, 1865; Hon. Captain, March 8, 1876. Retired h.p. March 8, 1876.
Served with the 11th Hussars in Bulgaria and the Crimea during the Eastern Campaign 1854-55, including the affairs of the Bulganak and McKenzie's Farm, battles of the Alma, Balaclava (led the left troop f the right squadron in the Light Cavalry Charge and was wounded), Inerman, and Tchernaya, and siege and fall of Sebastonopol (Medal with 4 clasps; French and Turkish War Medals). Granted the Reward for "Distinguished and Meritorious Services" (R), Feb 6, 1882. Died in London, Jan 23, 1902.
I am 99% sure a photo exists of him - on ebay I managed to buy an album which someone had filled with info on him, and one page is missing something, though his name is written under it. It looks like there was a photo at one point. Would an army museum or any sepcific archives have it?
Thanks to all,
