A very early Carte de Visite photograph of a veteran of the Gwalior Campaign in India of 1843 and the Crimean
War. He wears the Gwalior Star which was awarded to members of Her Majesty's forces and those of the
Honorable East India Company for participation in either the Battle of Maharajpoor or the Battle of Punniar. Both
battle were fought on 29 December 1843. Bronze from captured guns was used in the manufacture of these stars.

He also wears a single clasp Crimean War Medal and the Turkish Crimea Medal. His hat almost appears to be a
early pattern military shako with an oilskin cover.
