Captain Mayweather & Lt. Fitzroy, c. 1887
This fragment of a regimental photo of the 3rd Sikhs of the Punjab Frontier Force was recovered from remaining files of Captain Braxton Fitzroy, stored in the Political and Secret Archives of the India Office Library. In it we see Captain Mayweather, Fitzroy’s superior during the opening months of the 2nd Afghan War (standing) as well as the (then) Lieutenant Braxton Fitzroy. One of the regimental dogs, (according to research, called Old Gregg), has his head on Braxton’s knee.
