This image is extremely moving and poignant. The scene is of the 42nd Regiment of Foot (later called the Black Watch), during the Crimean War winter campaign of 1854-1855. The dying man on the ground is whispering his dying words to the man propping him up while the third stands over them. The image is said to have been inspired by reading a book on Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow and adapted to a more familiar British theme. This remarkable snapshot of 19th century history hangs in the Black Watch Museum, Balhousie Castle in Perth, Scotland .
