Hi Littlehand

I have now caught up with you. Yes the database is quite large :) many years of people donating and passing on the information they have, many years of road trips looking for graves.

Gentleman Cadet James Alleyne, Royal Military Academy circa 1862
John Young Collection

Following a discussion with my partner-in-crime Isandula, and after consulting the McCord Museum website, I have changed the image here.  Rather than the bewhiskered figure I thought was Alleyne, James Alleyne is actually the clean-shaven youth above him, with his arms folded.

See the McCord image on http://www.mccord-museum.qc.ca/en/collection/artifacts/I-10257.1

You seem to have a photo of nearly everyone who fought in SA. How many photos are there in the John Young collection. The photo above is an excellent example.

Would be good to have a copy of the photo, added to his Grave in the grave section of the forum.
