Colonel John French, 19th Hussars

I am not going to elaborate here on the life of the future Field-Marshall - superb reference being available online :

The photograph is interesting in its own way : while displaying Colonel French in the 19th Hussars' attire, it is quite clearly labelled "MAJ-GENERAL J.D.P. FRENCH"
We are most certainly in the presence here of a "Boer War Souvenir", displaying the celebrities of the Army.
