Identification of uniform

Classification: Query
Surnames: HESSE

I'm researching my husband's great grandfather Johannes (John)HESSE from Birkenbringhausen, Germany - migrated to Australia 1861.

Family still in Germany have given me a copy of a photo taken by E. Thibodeau, No 28 Nicollet Island, Minneapolis. They thought this was John in an Australian military uniform - which it isn't - nothing so splendid here.

I believe the gentleman in the photo is another brother - probably Carl/Karl/Charles HESSE.

Can anyone identify the uniform he is wearing or suggest another board that might help?


Canberra, Australia
