Gents,

Have the individual officers shown in this image been identified anywhere? Probably taken in 1868. Prince Alfred clearly sits at centre with the 'scope. I am particularly keen to identify 2nd Master Sidney Smith, who would have been 23 at the time.

Thanks,

I would suggest contacting the Naval Museum at Greenwich.  Given the exalted rank of the Captain, there is some chance at least that a copy of the photo with these men identified does exist.  Good luck with the hunt!
