This unidentified officer of the 94th Regiment of Foot posed for this photograph which would have been taken just
after the regiment
's return for South Africa around 1882. The regiment had taken part in the Anglo-Zulu War, the
Sekukuni War
, and the Transvaal War all between 1879 and 1881. Technically the 94th had already become the
2nd Battalion of the Connaught Rangers in 1881 so this was
probably the last time this officer would have posed in
the uniform of the old 94th. He wears a miniature version of the 1877-79 South Africa Medal
with "1879" clasp.
