Photograph, 1st Sudan War (1884-1885), 1884 (c).

According to Cassell's 'History of the War in the Soudan' Band Sergeant Frank Hayes of the 10th (Prince of Wales's Own Royal) Hussars 'showed great courage in the second charge [at El Teb], in dismounting, attacking, and killing a chief who was endeavouring to escape. Finding that his horse would not face the spear, he undauntedly attacked the Arab on foot, and killed him in single combat.'

From a collection of 35 photographs of officers and non-commissioned officers, 1856-1896.
