A portrait of a young man wearing military uniform from the Clonbrock Collection with the catalogue title "Swiss 94 B.Oberlan. An oval portrait of a soldier with glasses.
Dated 1894 it would have been before the Boer and World wars therefore this was likely to have been a professional soldier rather than an emergency/patriotic enlistment. Who was he and where did he fit in with the distinguished Dillon family?
