|No. 1877 Private James C. Weeks of the 1st Battalion, 22nd Regiment of Foot. Although no service papers have been
found for this soldier, a short mention of him is found in the 1871 Worldwide British Army Index which confirms his
first name, regimental service number, regiment and battalion as well as him having enlisted sometime prior or the
Index's 1871 edition date. His other ranks 1877-81 pattern tunic also helps date this photograph.
Below is the inscribed reverse of the photograph. Weeks' regimental service number of 1877 could easily be misread
as a date.
