Frédéric,

As promised one of my birthday presents:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The somewhat disorderly Orderly Room of the 90th L.I. circa 1873
John Young Collection.

The shorter officer standing at the centre of the table is Captain (later Lt.-Colonel) William Rennie, V.C., who was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions on 21st & 25th September 1857 at Lucknow, during Sepoy Mutiny.

Thus far I have identified two officers who served in Zululand:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Joseph Henry Laye.
Lieutenant & Adjutant 90th L.I. in 1873.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Apsley Cherry.
Captain 90th L.I. in 1873.

I'd welcome any other suggestions as to the other officers' identities, if anyone has any?

John Y.

Bonsoir Mister Young,

A very beautiful present for a collector!
I am really crazy about this typical Victorian's table !!!( with the armories/blazon of the 90th L.I just above the "tray"?)

I know, it's not a good joke...
Most seriously, thank you for having sharing this photo with us (I am not sure of the translation:Je vous remercie d'avoir partagé cette photo avec les membres de ce forum).
Kind regard.

Frédéric.

I.E1: Congretulation Mister Young, Frédéric with two "é"!!!
I.E2; I can't see Walter Higginson on your photo

Littlehand,

I tried to post this last night, but Photobucket was down for hours.

Here are the 90th Light Infantry, the following year, 1874, photographed at Dover in front of the White Cliffs:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

John Young Collection.

1,  J. H. Laye.*
2,  H. de C. Rawlins.*
3,  R. M. Rogers, V.C.*
4,  G. Sandham.*
5,  H. Palmer.
6,  N. Norris, A.M.D.
7,  H. E. Wood, V.C.*
8,  R. H. Hackett.*
9,  A. M. Maude.*
10, J. Newman.*
11, W. S. Hamilton.*

* = Served in the Anglo-Zulu War.

Somewhere, I got a key to the remaining officers is this group.

John Y.

I'm thinking "Apsley Cherry" is standing to the left of "  A. M. Maude" ?

Littlehand,

No Cherry isn't in the Dover photograph, that is why I wanted the other photograph. Cherry had the Mutiny Medal, the figure you have pointed out doesn't have a medal.

Regards,

John Y.

Not yet, I have got to work for a living.  I'll try and find it between Six-Nations matches over the weekend.

Les,

You know the game we can beat the Aussies at!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
90th Light Infantry at Dover, 1874.
John Young Collection.

Please note the correction as to the identity of Capt. Hamilton.

Ranks as in Hart’s Army List for 1874:
1, Lt. J. H. Laye.*
2, Sub-Lt.  H. de C. Rawlins.*
3, Lt. S. J. Stevens.
4, Maj. R. M. Rogers, V.C.*
5, Lt. G. Sandham.*
6, Lt.-Col. H. W. Palmer.
7, Surg.-Maj. N. Norris.
8, Brevet Lt.-Col. H. E. Wood, V.C., C.B.*
9, Lt. J. W. Banbury.
10, Lt. A. W. Elliott.
11, Capt. G. E. Perryn.
12, Lt. R. Lawrence.*
13, Capt. J. Campbell.
14, Capt. D. Maclachlan.
15, Capt. W. S. Hamilton.*
16, Capt. R. H. Hackett.*
17, Capt. W. F. Wilson.*
18, Lt. A. C. E. Welby.
19, Sub-Lt. A. M. Maude.*
20, Ferguson (?)
21, QM J. Newman.*
22, Lt. F. M. Balfour.

* = served in the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879.

Now I've just got to discover who Ferguson is and why his face appears to have been deliberately smudged!

John Y.

90th,

22nd November 2003 Telstra Stadium surely even you as non-rugby man remember that one?

Or the British & Irish Lions on 6th July 2013 at ANZ Stadium?

Enough, now back on topic.

There are three, maybe four, officers in the Orderly Room photograph unidentified.

The officer behind Laye has at least one, possibly two medals up.  I would venture that might be Capt. Randall Ironside Ward, who served in the Royal Navy in the Crimean War.  British Medal and the Turkish Medal.

The officer standing behind Cherry's right shoulder may be Lt. Welby, which would make him  and Laye, the only ones to appear in both photographs.

That leaves four other officers unaccounted for: Lieutenants F. R. Harvey & E. Lethbridge; Sub-Lt's. W. Hutchinson & W. Hawley.  Anyone got any of their photographs to compare?

John Y.

Hi JY
This will test me !!!!!! , Telstra Stadium Nov 22 2003 , was that the Field Goal in the last 30 secs by Wilson or a similar name , was he Captain ? . If so I watched that game , was it also the W.Cup ?? . That's about my ability I'm afraid with Rugby  Rolling Eyes . I do watch Melb Storm in the NRL on TV occasion . Sorry for the off topic .
Cheers 90th .  Salute

Andy,

Look at the close-up of Laye and the Bugler, there’s an officer behind Laye with at least one medal ribbon up. I surmise that might be Ward.
