erth, Scotland
c. 1885

A veteran private of the 1st Battalion, the Black Watch (Royal Highlanders). He wears the Egypt Medal with three clasps and the bronze Khedive's Star, and he had probably seen action
in Wolseley's 1882 Egyptian Campaign and the Gordon Relief Expedition of 1884-85. His left cuff bears one good conduct stripe. Interestingly, he chose to be photographed with both his
glengarry (at left) and his feathered bonnet (at right). The carte is dedicated to "Annie" on its reverse side.
