21st Lancers group photo at Abbassia 1898

Postby NickSimpson » 07 Sep 2017 21:48

I have a very poor photocopy of a photograph that was taken in Abbassia, Egypt in 1898 shortly before their famous charge at Omdurman. It shows Lieutenant de Montmorency and his troop of 21st Lancers. Altogether there are twenty nine soldiers including Lieut de Montmorency. The photographer was Lekegian, Cairo.

This is quite a well known photograph and I was wondering if anyone can identify any of the N.C.O's and private soldiers?

I would be grateful for any help and advice.

Many thanks,
