A fine study of a young mounted officer of an unidentified regiment. The photograph appears to have been taken
outside a barrack building in or around Belfast about 1900.
The photograph may have been taken just prior to his
deployment to South Africa during the Anglo-Boer War. He appears outfitted in foreign service order and wears a
late pattern foreign service helmet with the squared off rear peak.
