Littlehand,

Coker trained on the Britannia, if it doesn't say that I doubt it is him.

From the text put on eBay by the seller.

"This rare item came from a house clearance van at a boot sale in Abingdon several years ago. It came to me in very poor condition with broken glass and the frame falling apart. It featured a group photo of the Naval brigade from H.M.S. Active which I had seen before together with a Victorian cabinet photo of a Navy cadet. This appears to be Lewis Cadwallader Coker who joined the Navy aged 12, rose to Midshipman and took charge of the first British Gatling gun to see action in the Anglo-Zulu war of 1879.
The photo was taken by J. Wakeham of Stonehouse Devon. Research shows that this photographer was in business  at the time of Coker's training on H.M.S. Brittania which is just readable written on the back of the picture. The photo is mounted in what seems to be a page from a Victorian photograph album. There is also a rare Victorian print of Fort Pearson (3) where Coker and the Naval brigade were based in the early stages of the invasion of Zululand.
Some refurbishment had to be done to this piece whilst trying to keep it as original as possible. The frame which was traditionally nailed in each corner is strengthened with screws.The mount was so damaged it has been replaced by a new one, cut by hand and duplicated from the original. The picture has a new back board but retains the old brass "turns to allow access. Some modern "D" rings for hanging have replaced the old rusted hooks which just crumbled. It is quite possible that this belonged to a relative of the Coker family which I believe lived in Oxfordshire. It is a truly evocative piece for the serious Zulu War collector.
