Court-Martial of Lt. Perry of H. Majesty?s 46th Regiment

The Court-Martial of Lieut. Perry of H. Majesty?s 46th Regiment, in the Mess Room at Windsor Barracks, August 1854.Coloured lithograph after artist unknown, published by Read and Co, London, 9 Sep 1854.The hierarchical and socially exclusive nature of the early Victorian officer corps was thrown into sharp relief by the court martial of Lieutenant James Edward Perry of the 46th (The South Devonshire) Regiment. The son of a tradesman, Perry had been subject to severe bullying until, losing all restraint, he attacked Lieutenant Thomas Greer with a silver candlestick. Both officers were eventually required to sell their commissions and leave the Army but the proceedings of the court martial exposed the unsavoury atmosphere in at least one officers? mess and generated much adverse publicity. Date: 1854
