    Here is a image ( identity unknown) I had in my collection that @ColorizedPast took
    and made come alive!
    Here of late he mostly post his work of well known Generals, but I like the fact that this cavalry officer is unknown but not forgotten thanks to this forum and his work!
    Enjoy

    Wow. Doesn't look like the same person.

    I could never ID a suspect for the police.

    I think the subject is a corporal and not an officer. The two stripes on his sleeve would indicate the rank of corporal.

    The only negative observation I have is that his kepi or forage cap appears to be tinted blue. if you look closely, you can see it's shiny, indicating that what you're looking at is actually a removable cover and these were tarred canvas or rubberized so likely black in either case.
