Artistically presented, this cabinet photograph depicts a young lieutenant of the Royal Canadian Artillery. He was most likely an
officer in "B" Battery which was stationed in Quebec City, Quebec.  "A" and "B" Batteries were the first units of the regular
Canadian army to be raised in 1871 after Confederation. While his helmet bears the Canadian version of the Royal Artillery helmet
plate it sports an infantry style spike as opposed to the ball more commonly seen on British artillery helmets.
