Bourne & Shepherd - Photographer
Simla, Calcutta & Bombay, India
Based on his crossed axes collar badges, this unnamed colonel appears to have been on officer of pioneers in the Anglo-Indian Army. Unfortunately there is not enough information in
the photograph to identify precisely which regiment of pioneers my may have commanded.
His medal ribbons seem to include the Second Afghan War Medal and the Egypt Medal and Khedive's Star. The 128th Pioneers where entitled to these same medals but his possible
connection to the 128th is purely supposition.
