Du Plat (b. 1822), Equerry to Prince Albert, Honourable Beatrice Byng (1826-84), Colonel Thomas Biddulph (1809-78), Frances, Viscountess Jocelyn (1820-80) and General Everard Bouverie (1789-1871), Equerry to Prince Albert.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative exists in the collection, RCIN 2906655.
