6 Captains

Crimean War: Captains Ralph Budd, John Dwyer, William Cosmo, Trevor Frederick Hammersley, John Barlow and Angus Hall of the 14th Regiment of Foot (Buckinghamshire) next to a caisson. Photo by Roger Fenton, Crimea, 1855. Note that in making the photographs an exposure time of 10 to 20 seconds was required. I wonder what the man with the white hat is doing.


  1. That was a vintage photo of the troops who experienced war. How fascinating that the weapons before are now improve with our generation.

  2. They have also a style in clothing and hair trend during those days. They are so proud when you look at this picture. :D

    1. They indeed look proud in their buttoned uniforms and their fierce beards.
