Hi All

After reading this article, I am asking this question, Can anyone confirm that he did take part?

Not Lt.-Col. John Scott. But a photo of the type of uniform worn by the The Cape Town Highlanders. Be it (1896-97)

http://www.soldiersofthequeen.com/page5-PrivateCapeTownHighlanders.html

1879Graves. Found this.

"Newly-formed Cape Town Highlanders in July 1885. In 1891, the Dukes took over the Cape Town Irish Volunteer Rifles, and in 1894 the Regiment formed a mounted company.

From February to August 1897, the Dukes were on active service in Bechuanaland, as part of a government military operation to capture dissident Tswana leaders who had taken refuge in the Langberg mountains."

So we are looking between 1885-1891. Not Zulu War era.

"A group Scotsmen in Cape Town and the Peninsula formed the regiment and its establishment was gazetted with effect from 24 April 1885. John Scott who had served in the Scots Fusilier Guards and who was a veteran of the Frontier Wars of 1877 to 1879 accepted the Command. Although 150 men had originally promised to join, only 3 officers and 16 men attended the regiment's first parade. Scott formed the men up and, after an hour's drill; the squad was marched off to a room in the old Exchange Buildings, where they were joined by a large number of volunteers. By the end of the evening, the regiment had 23 men more than the unit's establishment table allowed."

So Scott could have served in the Anglo Zulu War 1879.
