He became a Major General in 1858 and was advanced to Lt General in 1867. He served in the 68th Foot [the Durham Light Infantry], being commissioned into the regiment in 1821 and becoming Colonel of the Regiment in 1864. The general is shown full length and wears a frock coat with the very wide medal ribbons fashionable in the Crimean period, and carries a mameluke pattern sword.
