Captain Frederick John Butts and a fellow officer of the 77th (East Middlesex) Regiment of Foot, Hyde Park, Sydney 1858

By Joseph Fowles

It is not known if Captain Butts, pictured in this work, was related to Mr Stephen Butts, the fashionable rider on the white horse in Macquarie Street, in Joseph Fowles’ companion equestrian portrait.

The 77th Regiment of Foot, nicknamed the ‘Pot Hooks’, arrived in Sydney on 26 September 1857. It was the second British Regiment to be stationed at Victoria Barracks, Paddington. Originally detailed for duty in Hong Kong, the regiment was diverted to serve in Calcutta in 1858.
