A rare hand colored portrait of an unidentified private that has been beautifully hand colored by the photographic
studio. Unfortunately this same coloring has obscured the regimental color badges that would have helped in
positively identifying this soldier's regiment. The cap badge seem to indicate a light infantry regiment and this
coupled with the blue tunic facings and the Bristol location make me believe that this man was a member of Prince
Albert's (Somersetshire Light Infantry). The has been minor loss to the scarlet coloring of the
soldiers tunic.
