Hi Isandula,

Keep guessing.

Just as a heads-up the Rifle Brigade officer is wearing a pre-1881 uniform, to help your time-range.

Barry,  Good try, but not Horace S-D, and, JB, cool uniform on RB officer.   Today's clue:

Clue 1--in mufti
Clue 2--with bowler

No, Frederic, not Lysons or Beresford--but probably "yes" to the second query. John, if he has a knobbie with him in the photo, then it must be a miniature in his pocket.

Clue 1--in mufti
Clue 2--with bowler
Clue 3--With the right daddy, it's easy to get a plum position.
Clue 4--By all accounts, he was an "Honourable" man.
