Photograph of Queen Victoria meeting wounded Crimean War veterans in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. The Queen and members of the Royal family are standing in a small group to the right with a number of the veterans. The other soldiers, around fifty in total, are seated on benches in a semi circle around the Royal party. There is a large tree to the right and Buckingham Palace can be seen behind. The corners of the negative were damaged, leading to imperfections in the print.

Throughout the war Queen Victoria had taken an active interest in the welfare of the troops and on their return to Britain she met a number of the wounded veterans at Buckingham Palace and at the military hospital at Chatham.
