Editorial: Maull & Fox, Photographers to the Royal Family, London
Año de publicación: 1870
Edición: 1st Edition.
A fine cabinet sized original vintage portrait, probably about 1870 (Bythesea is not wearing the CIE which he was awarded in 1878], showing the admiral in full dress uniform with his sword against a studio naval backcloth. He wears his medals and order (Victoria Cross, CB, Baltic Medal, Second China Medal, and a foreign order]. This was a very early award of the VC, the second of the Baltic campaign and won for a very daring initiative when the young Bythesea (then a Lieutenant on HMS Arrogant) took a small party ashore to intercept and capture a party carrying secret messages from the Czar to his Baltic fleet. He later served in India and China and was responsible for overseeing the transformation of the old Indian Navy into the Royal Indian Marine. His award of Companion of the Order of the Indian Empire was made on the day of the very first awards, 1st January 1878. Size: 4.5 x 6.5ins [11 x 16.5cm]. N° de ref. de la librería 007153
