However, in relation to yours and Bob's identification of those items at NAM, we may have to wait till next year when the musuem reopens its doors. It is possible to access some textual items via temporary outstations in London and Hertfordshire but I suspect these two, especially the Crealock album may not be available for examination outside the museum premises.
I have already viewed some items at the London History Centre, so I can see what the possibilities are. Given the date, I don't imagine an enquiry will bear much fruit before the New Year but I shall have a go.
Sounds great !! I would be VERY interested in what you could report about the Crealock sketches, or the photograph. I am putting together an Indian Mutiny reenacting impression of the 93rd, and others in our group are putting together impressions of other units in that conflict. I am sure that you would have happier hunting AFTER the NAM reopens...
