Fairly certain this would be Captain Ernest Manningham Buller standing second from left at this garden party photograph from Oct. 21, 1868.
If anyone would care take take a shot at identifying the fellow lying on the ground--who was a prominent figure in the Zulu War, please take a chance. Hint: I believe that is a sketchbook in his hand. Upon correct Id, I will post a photograph of the entire mount which has all participants identified.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Well, done, 90th, good spot of HHC! Note the floppy hat in his lap--somewhere I think I read where he wore that in the Zulu War with a peacock feather in it!
