This sergeant of the 1st Caithness Artillery Volunteers shows that not all volunteers were simply part time soldiers.
This man wears the Crimean War Medal, the Turkish Crimean War Medal, the Indian Mutiny Medal and what
may be a Long Service & Good Conduct Medal. He had seen a good deal of active service overseas before
returning to Scotland and continuing his service to the Crown as a volunteer artilleryman.
