    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.

    I don't know any details but wouldn't it be black? I'm just basing that on the painted canvas packs and straps. However I've never seen on that was as shiny as this cap.
