This superb portrait of a piper of the 2nd Battalion, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (Princess Louise's) was
probably sometime in the around 1899 while that battalion was stationed at Ranikhet. The splendid uniform is
matched by this soldiers almost regal bearing. The finery aside he is a veteran of active service this being born out
by the single clasp campaign medal on his chest. This medal is most likely a single clasped 1895 India General
Service Medal.
