This photo is probably not sharp enough to identify the regiment. But it looks about right for 1870's - In camp at Aldershot.

You do realise you've just thrown down the gauntlet to Mr Young.

As if! Isn't it odd how familiar some of those faces seem to be - but just like group photos of more recent times, they all look the same in uniform. What I also find interesting is that these are the original Crimea period barrack huts in Aldershot.

Same huts in an earlier time. Crimea period uniforms.

Steve,

Your first photograph is post-1878 at the earliest. The officers are wearing the star pattern Home Service helmet plate. The detail is blurred when I attempt to increase the image size, but the officer on the far right appears to have a Lieutenant’s star on his left shoulder which would put the image post-1881. Dark facings so either a Royal Regiment of the Line, or an Irish Regiment.

Steve,

The same wooden huts forming the backdrop to the 57th (West Middlesex) Regiment, late 1860’s.
