General Sir Colin Campbell, G.C.B.- from a photograph by Mayall, 1856. 'This gallant officer left England a few days ago, on his return to the Crimea, where his brave Highlanders will joyfully welcome their beloved chief, who has so often led them to victory...By direction of her Majesty, General Sir Colin Campbell has sat to Mr. Mayall, the eminent artist of Argyll-place, Regent-street, for a photographic portrait in the General's undress uniform; and Mr. Mayall has succeeded in producing a fine and very characteristic likeness. The portrait has a peculiar interest from the fact of the General having hitherto resisted all applications to sit to an artist. By the graciously-aocorded permission of her Majesty we are enabled to present the accompanying Engraving from Mr. Mayall's photograph'. From "Illustrated London News", 1856.
