His is an unusual story to say the
least. While James Booth Clarkson
is a historically obscure personage
today his life is rather unusual
from a military point of view. It
certainly does not quite fit into the
expected categories. He was
medical doctor who resigned...

Sergeant Patrick Connole
65th Regiment of Foot

Rochester, New York, United States
c. 1871
This carte de visite represents the globe-
spanning familiar connections that a mid-
19th Century serving British soldier could
have. In this case No. 2911 Sergeant
Patrick Connole of the 65th (2nd
Yorkshire - North Riding) Regiment of
Foot, who had family connections in
Rochester, New York
, where this
photograph originated.

Patrick Connole was born sometime
around 1833 at Ennistymon in County
Clare. His parentage is obscure although
the photograph’s inscription says he was
one of twelve children. He attested with the
65th Regiment of Foot at Dublin on 21
February, 1851 when not quite 18 years old.
At the time of his enlistment the 65th Foot
was serving in New Zealand so Connole
may have been part of the draft of 6 officers
and 210 non-commissioned officers and
men under Major G. F. Murray sent out in
September 1855 on the Duke of Portland to
replace men whose periods of enlistment in
the 65th had come to an end in the colony
.
