Title Sepia photo of Black Watch at Malta, on parade with cased colours
Nationality British
Period c 1875
Price £35.00

This sepia photograph, pasted on card cut from a page from a British military album, shows the 42nd at Malta, whence, according to Hart's Army list of 1879, they disembarked in November 1874. They would appear to be armed with Snider/Enfield conversions, which were the rifles in use during their stint in the 1873-4 Ashantee War.

Overall dimensions are 14 x 23cm. The card is damaged at the back and there is a 7cm tear to the bottom right of the image, but nothing that can't be secured with a little TLC! The overall colour is a somewhat yellowed sepia.
