Lieut Colonel Trevenen James Holland C.B., Bombay Staff Corps, late 13th Bombay NI.
An unusually large photographic portrait showing the officer in dress uniform wearing orders and medals. 17 x 22.5 ins [43 x 57cm] signed lower left in red [difficult to read]. Holland was born to a military family in 1836 and educated at Cheltenham College and St John’s College Oxford. He joined the Bombay Army in 1852 and served in the Crimea. He was A.Q.M.G to Havelock in the Persian Campaign [3 times mentioned in despatches]; again in the Q.M.G. Department under Rose in the Central India campaign of the Mutiny; throughout the Abyssinian Campaign as Q.M.G. to Lord Napier [C.B. and mentioned in despatches]. The photograph, clear enough to read the naming on the Abyssinia medal, shows Holland wearing the campaign medals, Al Valore Militare, Turkish Crimea, C.B., Order of St John, Order of the Medjidie, and Legion d’Honneur. The photograph is in excellent condition, mounted on card and in a contemporary grey card window mount.
