It does look a bit like Anstey.
Isn't that Paymaster White in the back row in the hat that looks rather clerical?
What is the photo and where was it taken?
Any other recognisable Isandlwana casualties in it?

it was take in malta i beleive in 1872 : reclining backwards on the floor in the middle is captain mostyn F COMPANY

2 across to the left from major white with dark moustache is lieutenant melville

by the shuttered window on the left the tall chap with dark moustache is captain wardell
and to the left of him with no moustache is lietenant porteous

the man stood behind colonel glyn to the left of melville is captain harris of b company 1/24th whose company
was on detached duty in pondoland during the zuluwar
.
the man circled im sure is lieutenant anstey does anyone have a listing for this photo?

I haven't checked ages but I seem to recall Anstey was pretty young at Isandhlwautf- so perhaps 1872 would be too early a date for him in the 24th?

The photo is part of the Ron Sheeley collection. Due credits to him. It was taken in Malta at the beginning of 1870s
It apears in Like Wolves to the Fold.
Col Snook identifies a lot of the people present but not that particular person.
Upsher on the left with hand on hip
Porteous standing third from left
Wardell standing 5th from left
Harrison standing 8th from left
White standing wearing the civilian hat.
Henry Degacher seated arms folded
Glyn seated to his left
Dunbar seated 2 down from Glynn
Mostyn third from left on the ground.

Does look like Anstey though.

Regards

Impi,
No magic software. I have this photo. Sadly it was matted and part of a scrapbook with numbers written on it for each man.(no names anywhere though) Then some genius applied a lacquer or glue like coating. O’ well, you take what you can get sometimes.

Cheers, Jeff

Thanks I was hoping you had some unknown photo software not available in the UK. Live in hope that's what I say.
