Title Carte de visite, Seaforth Highlander (officer)
Nationality Scottish
Period c 1890

Well detailed portrait of a young officer in full dress, complete with bonnet, broadsword and dirk. Note the belt plate details for the regimental insignia and the plaid brooch. Probably taken prior to overseas posting, possibly to India since the other cartes de visite from the same source are all Indian.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
