A Watercolour of a Volunteer Rifleman, probably from one of the Metropolitan Rifle Corps.

The Volunteer is shown informally with his rifle slung over his shoulder and a tent in the background. It is possible that this study is taken from a contemporary print and such a subject would have been very popular when the Rifle Volunteers were first raised. It is well drawn and was done by a competent artist whether professional or amateur. In a maple cushion frame. Circa 1860.
