Dejatch Alamayou, King Theodores Son, July 1868
Dejatch Alamayou, King Theodore's Son, July 1868. The young orphaned prince cradles a little white doll and stares sadly into space. Dejatch Alamayou was taken to England after the British defeat of the Ethiopians at the battle of Magdala and the suicide of his father, Tewodros (Theodore) II, emperor of Ethiopia, in April 1868. Queen Victoria took an interest in Alamayou and saw to his education and protection, placing him in the care of Captain Tristram Speedy, who, like Cameron, had a home on the Isle of Wight. Speedy brought the child to Cameron's house shortly after his arrival in England.

Broken arm bone, digital X-ray
Broken arm bone. Digital frontal X-ray of the fractured right humerus (upper arm bone) of a patient in their early twenties. This is a compound fracture of the shaft (diaphysis) of the bone, with the fracture ends displaced. The bone will need to be immobilised to allow healing to take place. Various sets of data relating to the image can be seen around the edges of the X-ray.

Brain injury. Gross specimen of a section through a brain showing the effects of a blunt trauma. The hemisphere at right is showing extensive haemorrhaging (bleeding, brown areas) and haematoma (bruising, dark brown). This bleeding, along with oedema (accumulation of fluid), has caused the brain to swell and herniated (displaced) the cingulate gyrus (upper centre) and compressed the ventricles (spaces at centre).
