John McCosh 
Italian priest, Burma 
1852 (ca) 
National Army Museum 
NAM Accession Number: NAM. 1962-04-3-309 
Curatorial description (accessed: 13 August 2017)
This is one of two photographs of the Italian priests who were used in the unlikely role of emissaries by Burmese King Mindon Min in peace negotiations with the British. The study of two such significant but otherwise unknown figures is perhaps illustrative of McCosh's awareness of the importance of photography in documenting history.
From an album of 310 photographs, 1848-1853.
