Ensign James Archibald Hay, 74th Highland Regt.


A carte de visite by J Caldesi &Co of London showing the officer in full dress uniform, his shako on a studio table on which he rests his right arm. The card is identified beneath the image as Mr J Hay. Hay began his service in 1866 and the photograph probably dates from shortly afterwards. He was still serving in the regiment after it merged with the 71st and became part of the Highland Light Infantry. He served in the Egypt War of 1882, became a Major in 1882, retiring that year.
