Dcli Military Soldiers Colonel


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the early 1900s showcases a momentous parade of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry in High Cross, Truro, Cornwall. The image captures the essence of military pride and discipline as soldiers march in perfect formation under the watchful eye of their commanding officer. Amongst them is Colonel Arthur Tremayne of Carclew, an esteemed figure who fought valiantly at the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War. Col Tremayne's distinguished service and unwavering commitment to his regiment are evident in this photograph. His presence exudes strength and leadership, serving as an inspiration to both his fellow soldiers and future generations alike. It is a poignant reminder that behind every soldier stands a story filled with sacrifice, bravery, and honor. The photographer responsible for capturing this remarkable moment is Samuel John Govier. Through his lens, Govier immortalizes not only Col Tremayne but also the spirit and camaraderie shared by these gallant men. This print serves as a testament to Cornwall's rich military history while paying tribute to those who have dedicated their lives to protect our freedom. It holds immense historical value within its frame - a snapshot frozen in time that allows us to reflect upon the sacrifices made by individuals like Col Arthur Tremayne whose legacy continues even after their passing.
