Littlehand,

The 'official' account published in 1881 which Horace Smith-Dorrien is referring to in his autobiography was the Narrative of the Field Operations connected with the Zulu War of 1879.

Page 48 recounts the loss of the Queen's Colour & Page 60 its recovery.

John,

If you're asking about Memories Of Forty-Eight Years' Service , it is all of £5.15 on Amazon as a Kindle edition, and you don't even need a Kindle to read it with! So hardly 'handfuls of money'.
