Thanks Graham - you save me from having to find that again!

Again this is only remotly related to this subject but on my soldiersofthequeen.com web site I have two cabinet photographs that are intriguing . One is an image of a member of the 5th Royal Irish Lancers wearing his Egypt Medal and Khedives Star that was taken in Chicago, Illinios, USA and another image of a U.S. cavalryman that was taken in Salford, Manchester, England.

I have no definite information as to how these two men came to be photographed where they were. One idea that fits well with both images is the possibility that both these men were members of Buffalo Billís Congress of Rough Riders. But that is just a guess.
