Photograph of Sir John Campbell (1807-1855) with soldiers of the 38th Regiment. Sir John Campbell is standing to the left turning towards the camera. The soldiers stand in two lines facing partly left, all wearing military uniform. There is a stone structure and three tents behind them and hills can be seen in the distance. The 38th Regiment returned at the end of the Crimean War with less than half of its original number. Sir John Campbell, a former Colonel of the regiment, died during the Battle of the Great Redan.
