A recent acquisition.  Royal Marine Light Infantry, Chatham Division. Mid-1870’s.

The photograph is too big for scanner so please excuse the poor quality.

Some odd anomalies here.  The Right Marker, a Corporal appears to have a full length sling, from rifle butt to bayonet fixing, normally seen in Rifle Regiments, whereas the remainder of those slings visible go from the trigger guard to the bayonet fixing ring.  A single black ammunition pouch appears visible on the Marines which is consistent with Musketry Order.  The Ensigns with the Colours also caught my eye, one wears his Colour belt over his left shoulder, the other over his right.

The barracks in the photograph were demolished in the 1960’s.

My great great grandfather was Thomas Griffin a Royal Marine at Chatham who was on board HMS Forrester during the Zulu war. I'm guessing he is in one of these pics somewhere.

Johnex,

Welcome to the forum.   Do you have any family records of Thomas Griffin's personal experiences during 1879, letters or diary?  I am always looking for new information about navy and marine personnel who served in the Zulu war.  I do have a copy of his service record if you are interested.

Tom
