Surgeon Major William Brydon CB, 1864 (c).

Photograph, 1864 (c).

Brydon (1811-1873) was famous for being one of the few survivors of the 4,500 British and Indian troops and 12,000 camp followers who took part in the retreat from Kabul to Jellalabad in January 1842. At the time he was an Assistant Surgeon with the Bengal Army. Brydon was later immortalised by the Victorian artist, Lady Butler, who portrayed him approaching the gates of Jellalabad perched on his exhausted horse.
