Victorian Photograph Collection of Jennifer Carnell
Captain Horne of the 16th Regiment.
A photograph by William Notman of Montreal, Canada taken in 1861.
Horne was probably involved in military amateur dramatics - he did not even remove his moustache, but instead covered it with makeup.
Charles Horne joined the 16th Regiment as an ensign in 1858. By the end of his career he was a Major General.
Born in London into a wealthy family, the son of James Thomas Horne, Charles James Horne had brothers called Henry St. John Horne, Edward and Frederick. In 1901, by now retired, Major General Horne was living with his wife Elizabeth in Dorset, and he died in Weymouth in 1910.
