Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one\'s a grandfather at least. If he\'d been a Zulu in his prime I\'d have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

PostSubject: Very Interesting Photograph of 91st Regiment   Sun Feb 20, 2011 3:01 pm

Hi All

I was browsing a well known auction site and came across the following photograph.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The seller states the following:
This is a GENUINE antique photograph of a group of soldiers from what I believe to be the 91st Regt of Foot taken at Wynberg Camp ,Cape Town in 1879 or 1880 just after the end of the War .This is one of 13 photos of this Regt in an album which I bought in Cape Town last year .The photographer is probably Barnard because the album had views ot Cape Town taken by him. I believe that the 91st Regt became the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. The size is 18 cm by 24 cm mounted on card there is obviously some fading..I repeat this is not a reproduction and may well be unique .On the back in feint pencil possibly ''F Comp Blands ''?

Looking at all those wearing a medal, could they be the Zulu War Medal?

Hi 1879Graves.
I've also seen this photograph , it cetainly looks like the Zulu War Medal which would mean its 1880 .
I wonder if he will auction off the other Photo's from the Album ?.

Hi 90th

As this one sold for £80.00, I did wonder if he was going to sell the others in the collection.

If they are all wearing Zulu War Medals, that is a great photograph, Loads of Veterans Idea Same they are not named.
