ZULU WAR 1879 Discussion & Reference Forum ( A Small Victorian War in 1879)

Lord Chelmsford. I regret to report a very disastrous engagement which took place on the morning of 22nd January between the armies of the Zulu king Cetshwayo and our own No. 3 Column consisting of a total of 1500 men, officers and other ranks.

Hi Springbok.
How Can Men Die Better dates the photo as 1871 but earlier posts have it at 1872 or 73 . If it is / was 71 then Bromhead
should be there . If it is 71 , maybe he was out on patrol in the midday sun ! . Rolling Eyes
cheers 90th.

Hi All

Many thanks to Admin & springbok9 for the photograph.

I have to agree that they were taken at the same time.

I will be contacting Martin to see if they can all be named.

i can name a fair few:
numbered from the viewers left
front row (1) lieutenant pope (2) captain logan (3) lieutenant symons
second row (2) captain pulleine (4) lieutenant harvey (5) captain church (7) lieutenant williams (on the chair)
third row (2) captain chamberlain (4) lieutenant banister
forth row (2) lieutenant rainforth (with hand on shoulder) (6) lieutenant younghusband (8) lieutenant sugden (with beard)

please note these are the ranks at time of photograph early 1871 i believe.
these numbered individuals refer to the first photograph not the photograph from HCMDB
