littlehand,
 
Thanks for posting the photo of Abbott.  Hopefully whoever purchased the album and journals will one day make some of the photographs of the crew of HMS Shah available for us to see.
 
There are several albums known to exist - Staff-Surgeon Norbury and Sub-Lieut. Fraser of "Active" and now Abbott's of the "Shah," and I am sure some of the Army as well.  
 
I truly apppreciate John Young, Isandula, and other members of the forum who share the photos in their collections with us.  There is something rewarding about looking on the faces of men who over 130 years ago served their country.  "Lest they be forgotten."
