Ciroferrara,

Personally I would say not. According to F.W.D. Jackson the photograph was taken in 1872, I believe Anstey joined the battalion in 1873.

The shape of the ears, the rounding of the chin and the slight drooping of the eye lids are the same?

Hi Gary - glad you've arrived safely - keep up the commentary!

JY
I have a record of you posting the group photo some time ago as part of a different discussion on RDVC. You noted then that it must have been taken between March 1872 because Cavaye has joined and March 1873 because of the presence of Corcor.  

Based on Graves note from the Army List, could it just about be E O Anstey I wonder?

90th are you able to send photo's from where you are. It would be easier to post the photo's in small numbers rather than 500 odd.

I've number all in the group here but stick with those I know, hopefully the numbers are legible:
1: Lt. F. P. Porteous - K.I.A. Isandlwana.
2: Capt. G. V. Wardell - K.I.A. Isandlwana.
3: Lt. C. W. Cavaye - K.I.A. Isandlwana.
4: Major H. J. Hitchcock (who took the name Degacher), commanded 2nd/24th in Zulu Campaign.

1: Lt-Col. R. T. Glyn - please note Glyn is wearing a single crown indicating the rank of Lt.-Colonel, again this is a good date indicator as he was promoted to Colonel on 13th February 1872.
2: Lt. T. Melvill, K.I.A. Fugitives' Drift, Natal, awarded the Victoria Cross.
3: Hon. Major F. F. White, K.I.A. Isandlwana.
4: Capt. W. M. Dunbar, served initially as a Major in 1879 with 2nd/24th, subsequently assumed command of 1st/24th during the Zulu Campaign.

90th,

What books have you picked-up?

Ciroferrara,

No that's the chap which David Jackson stated was a Chillianwala survivor. I believe that might be Quartermaster William Charters.

Can you confirm the receipt of my PM?

John Y.

By-the-way in 1872 Mostyn was in the 2nd Battalion, rather than the 1st Battalion according to the Army List.

By-the-way in 1872 Mostyn was in the 2nd Battalion, rather than the 1st Battalion according to the Army List.

About Mostyn, number 12 ( the first photo)?
By the way, There are two photographies of thé 2nd battalion un India c.1871 with pope, pulleine, younghusband, church, bannister, sugden...
Mostyn is not on these two photographies...

Ymob,

Yes I go along with Russell Upcher based on the image in Gon's book as No. 5.

William Mostyn had very large chin dimple where as No. 12 lacks one.

Bonsoir Mister Young,
Thank you very much for your answer.
For SNOOK ("likes Wolves on the fold" / Ron Sheeley collection), HARRISSON is the eighth from left (standing)
Sorry, i can't see his  number "in red" on your photography.
What is your opinion?

Mister Young,

The Chillianwala survivor might be Quartermaster CHARTERS? Or, The Chillianwala survivor and CHARTERS are not the same man (the man between Glyn and Dunbar)?.
Sorry if i didn't understand your sentence in your post.
Cheers
Frédéric

Frédéric,

Sorry it is the subtlety that you might not understand.  I have use italics to indicate that my assumption was a conjecture, although Charters is a plausible answer.

Obviously Dr. Snook had ready access to the archives at Brecon, so if he identifies the officer standing behind Glyn, and to Melvill's right as Harrisson, I presume he has concluded his findings based on photographic evidence.  However, he does also identify the officer as 'Mostyn', who I do not believe to be Mostyn due to the absence his chin cleft.  Even the engravers of The Graphic & Illustrated London News included this physical feature.

Regards,

John Y.

Mr Young,

About Mostyn, actually, i noticed his chin dimple in the engraving of him in your book "they fell like stones" (from "the illustrated London News" i suppose ? / I.E: I have read before the note about "the illustrations") and in others photographies of him.
About William CHARTERS:
I understood that your assumption was a conjoncture.
In others words, my question was about his presence or not at Chillianwala.
I searched his name in "the historial record of the 24th (...)" from Patton (and others).
His name is not in the list of the Officers in 1842, 1858 and 1865.
His name appears for the first time in the 1872 list as Quartermaster.
As you know, a Quartermaster could be a NCO before being promoted Quartermaster, as Pullen and Bloomfield in the 24th or M.J Kenny in the Connaught Rangers.
Thank you for your patience.
Cheers
Frédéric

William CHARTERS, a veteran of Chillianwallah (13 January 1849), was commissioned as Quartermaster from Sergeant Major on 18 July 1862. He enlisted in 24th on 5 June 1844 and retired as a Captain on 30 June 1877. I believe he went to Canada and acted as a Army Paymaster for other British Army veterans who had emigrated there.
