AMB,

There was I thinking you were an old sweat!

Take a look at https://www.flickr.com/photos/northampton_museum/4559399175/in/set-72157624701720444/lightbox/

Those cunning Victorians had Photoshop a long time ago. I've seen it done in montages but never as bad as that. He's still ranked as a Captain there in the text. The real part of that photograph must have been taken post-21st December 1895 as William Weallens is serving in the Northamptons rather than the S.W.B.'s.

A photographer's name might reveal all.

Regards,

John Y.

John,

The photoshop does stand out, hey?!

Where may point to the photographer. Does the museum have anything on the original?

Going back to the initial Schiess thread, there is a sketch of him within the display dedicated to him at The Museum of The Swiss Abroad, in Geneva. There is a vague likeness to Hill, as I recall, got a photo of it somewhere, I'll try and find it. The display consists of a few bits and bobs, I went to the opening about three years ago.
Regs, Col.
