I recently acquired this carte-de-visite of an unidentified Sergeant of the 80th, taken in Hong Kong.
The photograph shows the Sergeant in his tunic, clearly showing his Staffordshire knot collar and his numerals to his shoulder strap. Sadly there are no other clues as to his identity.
The 80th embarked for South Africa at approximately the same time the photograph was produced.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
