Nice photos thank you but the dating is at least 30 years wrong.

Some nice dress distinctions. 3 officers, a colour sergeant, several sergeants, several bandsmen and a drummer, a corporal wearing good conduct badges under the pre-1881 rules, and a four-badge man signifying at least 16 years and possibly as many as 22 years.

Can anyone attempt a dating ............ answers on a postcard please. No prizes for correct answers but it is NOT c. 1840!

Yes, I agree, post 1868 and well pre-1881 but I cannot find anything to pin the date down further with no weapons, medals and minimal accoutrements on show.

There are not that many photos of the period showing such good detail.
Fascinating

The collar badges (after careful squinting) appear to have the long low silhouette of the Royal Tiger stood on a torse that was adopted by the 67th in 1878. Superb photos, vote of thanks to forum member, Voltigeur, for posting them.

The 67th seem to have been in Bangalore, India at that time (1876-1881 and then as 2nd Hants until 1887). The officers dress is unusual and not something that I have seen before. It appears as if it might have been made up locally and constructed of cotton drill in a semi-Norfolk (hunting style) jacket. They have adopted regimental buttons as rudimentary collar badges. The regiment were very proud of their Royal Tiger badge and after amalgamation with the 37th the nickname of the new regiment was for many years, The Tigers. The 67th fought in Afghanistan in 1878.
