While the rifleman in this photograph appears the model of a stalwart soldier, his wife, with her rather startled expression, upstages
the moment in a most amusing and probably unintentional way.  In spite of the situation  she has managed to maintain all the of the
primness required of a young Victorian/Edwardian woman.
