Does anyone have any photo's or links to other regimental colours,that were carried throughout the Zulu War. We often discuss and post photo's of the 1st and 2nd/24th. But nothing on the other regiments that took part.

Hi Oh2 .
I've seen them in other books , I've had a quick look in the Library ! as springbok calls it . :lol!: I have no idea
how to post or load photos , but I think Pete Admin may have Robert Hope's book , if so page 18 has the 80th Regt's
Colours albeit a B&W photo. Lock and Quantrill's '' Blood on the Painted Mtn '' has a photo of The Border Horse's Flag
on page 149 . Also page 148 has the flag of the Edendale Troop which was presented to them in 1881 . The Border
Horse Flag is also in ' Zulu Frontiersman ; Major .C.G. Dennison , edited by Lock & Quantrill. I sure I've seen either
the 90 th or 99 th Regt flags but couldnt find them . Hope this has been some help .
cheers 90th .

"2nd Bn, Wiltshire Regiment - A black and white photo of the Regimental Colours 1871-1926. On 7th August 1871 HRH The Duke of Edinburgh presented these Colours to the Battalion in the Guards Enclosure at Aldershot thus fulfilling a promise he had made to the 99th in South Africa two years earlier. This stand of Colours was one of the last to be carried into action, in the Zulu War in South Africa in 1879. During the Boer war they were lodged at the Regimental Depot. On 21st August 1926 these Colours were brought back to England from India and laid up in Salisbury Cathedral in the presence of the Colonel of the Regiment, Major General F C Beatson CB. They were escorted to the Cathedral by the 1st Battalion who were stationed at Tidworth at the time".
