Troopers in the 2nd West York Yeomanry Cavalry

The ever knowledgeable Dave Knight provided the following enlightnening comments about that photograph :
"This is a private of the 2nd West York YC in the 1860s I would imagine and certainly before the plume was changed to white in about 1875."

The bearded veteran is proudly sporting two medals :
- The British Crimea War Medal (left)
- Most likely the Turkish Crimea Medal (right), refitted with a British suspender.

- Thanks to Dave Knight -
