Yes , I have a copy , it's an excellent book which covers what the FLH did during the war of 1879 , there's also mini Bio's on every member of the FLH , some of which aren't on the Medal Rolls , these were found by the Author Cam Simpson whilst researching this book , to me it's invaluable , I've been lucky enough to have been to some of the lesser known places where the FLH did patrol and skirmish etc , also it would be a fantastic aid for those looking to , or actually purchase the zulu war medals awarded to the personal of the FLH . Cam is also a member of this Forum . I don't think it's easy to come by , the only link I believe available is the Ebay one , postage is expensive on the link , but if you want to read a book on one of the main Colonial units it's a small price to pay , there's no other book on the market that deals with the FLH , or any of the Colonial units in such detail that I'm aware of off the top of my head ! .

Charle's actually has my copy of Zulu Rising on his book shelf (Clang, there goes another name)
but that's a story for another day to be recounted in a far flung frontier saloon with the dust of the battlefield still settling on our boots and an ice cold Windhoek Milk Stout. (sigh)

Just goes to show you should never lend books to people. Not even the unemployed.
