Frederick Archibald Vaughan Campbell, the 1st born son of the 2nd Earl Cawdor. The elder brother of the Honourable Ronald George Elidor Campbell, not as it was described on Ebay recently.

JB, I think the photograph is misnamed as "Viscount Emlyn"--you are correct that Frederick Archibald Vaughan Campbell aka Viscount Emlyn was the 1st born son of the the 2nd Earl Cawdor and elder brother of the Honourable Ronald George Elidor Campbell of Zulu War fame. However, you need to show me that the elder Campbell son was in the military as in the photograph. If not, then I think the photograph is, indeed, our Campbell of the Coldstream Guards who was KIA at Hlobane. I will quite happily beg your forgiveness and ask for a refund if you can confirm.

RB,

That’s an Artillery Volunteers lieutenant’s uniform, it is most certainly not a Coldstream Guards uniform as the vendor described it.

To my knowledge Ronald Campbell was commissioned into Coldstream Guards as an Ensign in 1867 without any prior volunteer military service.

Any evidence that the elder Campbell served as a Artillery Volunteer?

RB,

Viscount Emlyn was an officer in the Royal Carmarthen Artillery first commissioned in 1867.

This is taken from Hart’s 1879:

JB, You are a wizard--thanks for setting me on the right track, and I'll go about getting a refund for a misdescription. RB

RB,

Don’t forget my 10% fee for saving you that money!

I was going to contact the vendor when I initially saw it but it sold very quickly...

Happy to help.
