Officers of the 14th, 1899

The officers of the 14th Hussars pose in their khaki foreign service uniforms before embarkation at Southampton. The commanding officer Lt-Col G H C Hamilton is seated in the middle of the middle row. On his right hand is 2nd in command Major Edmund O'Brien who took over command in 1901. Captain Edward Brown (later Browne-Synge-Hutchinson) stands third from the left at the back. He won the VC for having saved, amongst others, Lieutenant J G Browne who sits cross-legged on the far right of the photo. Both men later became COs of the 14th. One more future CO stands on the left of the photo, Lieutenant Thomas Hill-Whitson
