Officer of the 47th Foot

Officer of the 47th Foot

A carte-de-visite portrait of an officer of the 47th (Lancashire) Regiment of Foot.

The portrait does not appear in the Silvy daybooks in the archives of the National Portrait Gallery and was therefore probably taken during the period covered by the missing daybook, July 1863 to June 1864.

Photographed by Camille Silvy of London.

A pencilled inscription verso in a period hand reads: 'With my love for the young lady with the ring, begging for hers in exchange'.
