Hi Isandula,

What a bunch of dudes!.
Reminds me of the Randlords, ie Barney Barnato and his illustrious well connected thugs.
My private joke.
Keep guessing.

Barry,

Just as a heads-up the Rifle Brigade officer is wearing a pre-1881 uniform, to help your time-range.

Regards,

Barry,  Good try, but not Horace S-D, and, JB, cool uniform on RB officer.   Today's clue:

Clue 1--in mufti
Clue 2--with bowler

It is therefore not a regiment involved both in the Zulu war and the Transvaal war
About you clue 3: Lysons or Beresford?

No, Frederic, not Lysons or Beresford--but probably "yes" to the second query. John, if he has a knobbie with him in the photo, then it must be a miniature in his pocket.

Clue 1--in mufti
Clue 2--with bowler
Clue 3--With the right daddy, it's easy to get a plum position.
Clue 4--By all accounts, he was an "Honourable" man.
