Hello My first post here so a quick introduction.
I visited the sites of Isadlwana and Rorke's Drift back in 2009 when i was working in Ladysmith on a Concrete railway sleeper plant.
My sister had lived in SA and my father had also visited the sites with a particular interest as,although in the Royal Navy, he had been attached to SWB in Malaya. He since has given talks on the battles to raise funds for various service charities.
I live in the south of UK and work as a .carpenter. My intention is to build a couple of ammunition boxes, one as a replica with tin lining and one which will hinge open to reveal a bottle of something worthwhile!. I've tracked down most of the information i need but would be grateful if anyone has any guidance on where I can obtain either the paper labels for the cartridge pack or details of sizes so I can make up a block print to make my own.
