A captain 71st Highland Light Infantry photographed in Malta circa 1875


The carte de visite by Rosati & C, Strada Stretta, Valletta, Malta shows a captain of the 71st Highland regiment wearing a full dress scarlet doublet with tartan plaid.  There is a later pencil name on the back but it does not make much sense. The 71st, later the 1st Bn Highland Light Infantry arrived in Malta in 1874 from Gibraltar. Our entry dec20/2 shows a more junior officer at about the same time.                   dec21/1
