95th at the Alma

This page at the WFR museum has some good pictures and information about the regiment's Crimea service including this photo of Corporal Thomas Finn.

  1. Thomas Finn might have been at the Alma but that uniform certainly wasnt. That is the 1855 double breasted tunic which was worn for only a few months before it was replaced by the more familiar single-breasted tunic. The new draftees sent out in spring 1855 wore the double breasted tunic. Very few of them survive due to their short lifespan.
