What do we know about this photograph?
Is it known if the three officers were particular good friends?
Where was it taken?

Regards

Hi Ciroferrara

The above photograph is published in Ian Knight's book "ZULU, Isandlwana & Rorke's Drift 22-23 January 1879"

The caption reads:-

"Three officers of the 24th photographed on the eve of the Anglo-Zulu War: Lieutenants Cavaye (left) and Porteous (centre), with Captain William Degacher. Porteous wears the officers' scarlet frock, the other two dark blue patrol jackets. All three die at Isandlwana. ("SB" Bourquin)

Graves1879,

The identification is erroneous left to right: Porteous; Cavaye (standing) & William Degacher.

I have seen a photo of the Cavaye Family when Charles Walter must have been five or six and He
has a very dominant role as in the photo I posted above.

Does anyone know what the sash Cavaye is wearing denotes?

Ciroferrara,

That he is a commissioned officer.

Sergeants - in most, but not all regiments - wore the sash over the right shoulder.

Ciroferrara,

If he were I doubt he would have been able to slip out to the Kisch Brothers' Studio for the photograph.
