PostSubject: Another mystery photograph - add a name to the face!   Sat Oct 26, 2013 10:20 am

Given the debate over Isandula's recent photograph, I thought I'd throw this one into the mix.

I have my own idea as to who the subject of the photograph is, but I welcome anyone else's input.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Unidentified officer, believed to be 24th Regiment.
John Young Collection

The photograph was taken by T. Cranfield, 115 Grafton St., Dublin.  Thomas Cranfield's studio had the endorsement Photographer & publisher to the Queen in Ireland, his was the studio where the rich and famous went to.  A number of his prints are in well-known national collections.

In another place it was concluded that the photograph was of Captain Frederick Carrington, 1st/24th, but I was never happy with that conclusion.  Having examined photographs of Carrington taken in South Africa circa 1877 held at Brecon, I am adamant it is not Carrington, the hair-line and ears don't match.  Added to this I believe Carrington remained in South Africa after 1879, he was apparently in the U.K. by January 1883.

However, the sitter in this photograph had his photograph taken prior to the 1881 Dress Regulations which added a shoulder strap (epaulette) to the Patrol Jacket.  On closer examination there is also the outline of a medal ribbon on left breast.

As I say I believe I know who the officer is, but I would welcome anyone else's opinion.

Bonsoir Mister Young,

For me he is not:Weallens, Browne, Anstey, Daly, Degacher x2, Godwin Austen x 2, Melvill, Pulleine, Pullen, Bloomfield, Coghill, Porteous, Cavaye, Atkinson, Dyer, Bormhead x2, Griffith, White, Much, Logan, Roche, Spring, D. Williams, Mainwaring, Dunbar, Black, Chamberlin, Harvey, Heaton, Bannister, Curll, Tongue, Mostyn, Rainforth, Younghusband, Hodson, Pope, Roche, Phipps, Penn Symons, Sudgen, Dyson, Glyn, Church and Curll.

I don't think he is Upcher.
You say he is not Carrington.
"Isundula", we need your help, where are you?

Cheers

Frédéric

Frédéric,

How about this chap?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
John Young Collection

Like the sitter in the Dublin photograph, he was in Ireland in 1880, he had a single medal ribbon at the time.

If you look at the mystery photo' he has an Imperial the remnants of a beard, his hair shorter than usual as he has been on campaign. Same jowl, as I say just my thoughts.

Any Photoshop experts who can trim out his sideburns?

Mister Young,

You are a hard man...
Your man is a survivor a the zulu war.
(...) in 1880, he had a single medal ribbon at the time".

Your chap is not Edward Browne.
BROWNE doesn'nt looks like him and BROWNE was awarded the VC at Pinetown camp on 22/08/1879 (before 1880).

I will search information on Bromhead brother ("same jowl" / "sideburns") and Symons.
A bientôt.

Frédéric

Frédéric,

No I was always happy that it was Gonville Bromhead, however, others held the belief it was Frederick Carrington. I could never see that myself, as the shape of the face didn't quite fit.

The photo was taken in Ireland in 1880 (John Young)
It seems that Carrington was not in Ireland in 1880.
Carrington: commanded transvaal volunteers against sekukini in 1878_79, and left wing cape mounted rifles 1879-83.

"Bromhead was posted to Gibraltar in 1880 and in August was dispatched to India where he remained until March 1881"




Need to know when in 1880 the photo was taken.

Somewhere on the forum there is a photograph of a young Bromhead, in a photo of either a football team or cricket. That might be a good comparison.
