Frederic,

I don't think the photograph was taken too long before 1879, personally I would hazard a guess at 1877/8 prior to his embarking for the Cape.

This was how he looked circa 1866, we can pin the date down by the pattern of the patrol jacket, which was abolished in that year.

The well-known image in MacKinnon & Shadbolt pre-dates his promotion to Captain in 1877, and I think he looks older in my recent photograph, hence my conclusion as to a possible date.

Regards,

Bonsoir Mr Young,
I am both very intrigued and interested by your last comment.
My previous comment (a pure speculation) was based on a photography (undated) of Stuart Smith published in the "Silver book" by IK (p.52).
The "study" of this photograph shows that:
-Stuart SMITH "lost his hairs " (I.E:balding);
-His equipment includes a "pooh" hat. It seems to me that the "pooh hat" was abandonned in the Royal Artillery a few years before 1879.
Unfortunately I was not able to decipher his rank on this photography.

As usual, happy to be corrected.


Cheers

Frédéric

Frederic,

In the photograph from the Royal Archives, Stuart Smith is wearing the insignia of a Lieutenant, whilst serving in A Battery, A Brigade, Royal Horse Artillery.

By "pooh hat" I take you mean his busby?  The Royal Horse Artillery first adopted the busby in 1837, and it is still in use to this day by officers of The King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery.

Stuart Smith was a Lieutenant between 1865 and 1877.  As to his look at some of the other officers on campaign they have had their heads shaved.  Smith had served in India for a long time so the image could been taken whilst serving there on his return from overseas service.

Mr Young,
Your answer is very instructive for me.
You solve a mystery for me (the supposed baldness) and correcting a false belief: the busby (I.E; the "pooh hat") was still in use in 1879 in the Royal Horse Artillery.
Thank you very much.

Cheers
