15th East Yorkshire Regiment. An offcier wearing a shako.


15th (East Yorkshire) Regt. A junior officer wearing shako, 1860s
The carte de visite by Samuels Studio, Dublin, and probably dates from the late 1860s when the 2nd Battalion was based at Cork. The image shows the officer in a studio wearing dress uniform and wearing a shako on which the regimental plate is clearly visible. We are not sure of the identity of the sitter but there is a possibility that it is Lieutenant Lawrence Henry Dundas. jan21/5
