Came across this on one of my surfing trips, while looking for Grave's Mr Attwell. Nothing to suggest what's going on, but i noticed the uniforms on the troops, look Zulu War period. Would appreciate any replies to what it’s relating to.
I thought at first is the reading of the ultimatum. But that’s was under a tree.

Hi All This is a much later illustration that was originally from the Illutrated London News. It is some form of parade from either the Ashanti War of 1896 or 98 [can't remember the exact date without looking it up], or the Benin Expedition of the same period. Rai Keynshamlighthorse
