This may be your man ? ; Royal Artillery 7th Brigade , Number 10 Battery ( Gatling Field Battery ) , Major Owen , J.F. Clasp 1879 , there is a well known picture of him , which is on here , and in nearly every book on the AZW !. Assuming he's the same man , which , it seems , is very likely ! .
90th . Salute
