a copy of an original antique victorian Albumen photograph that I have uncovered. It shows Christmas Pattersons ship HMS Simoom in a Typhoon in the China sea off the coast of Formosa in 1861. This was taken from an oil painting of the event. At the time Christmas was serving on her she was serving as a troop ship and she had on board soldiers of the Ist 60th Rifles ( The Rifle Brigade ).
