Hi all

In campaign in Zululand,after Michael Barthop and Ian Castle,some frocks had facing colour patcheswere worn on both collars and cuffs,e.g. the 2/21st,1/24th,2/24 th,58 th and 94th;others only on the collars,e.g. the 2/ 3 rd,2/4 th ,1/13 th ,80 th ,90 th and 99 th .

And for the 57 th and 88 th, color facings were worn in what way?

Cheers

Pascal

Well this is the best!

Still no answers?

Are there any specialists in the military on the Zulu War?

I thought it was a forum of military history of the Zulu War ...

Both the 57th and 88th wore yellow collar and cuff facings. (My source describes the 57th facings as 'bright' yellow.)

Hi all.
I've read somewhere that there are mistakes in the Reese DVD , I've no idea what they are but that stopped me from
buying the DVD. They may only be minor but I cant say for sure .

Hello 90 th

Yes, yes I remember when I painted my 30 figures of the 91 t Foot according to this documentation, it was full of errors and I had to re -painting all of my Highlanders after the osprey elite No. 32 ...

So do not paint the distinctive colors on the sleeves before further information, is not it.

And unfortunately the original photographs, this is not great either as a source uniformology.

Cheers

Well, what can I say?

I was just trying to be helpful. You will need to challenge Reese, not me.

Umbiki no problems, you had an extra idea, but before painting the sleeves, it is better to wait, do not you think?

In any event no controversy on the forum, I preferr waiting for someone to be certain on this issue without being contradicted by quiconcque.

I hope to have a definite answer before 2013 and you want to know, thank you again.

Cheers

Pascal

Hi Umbiki.
I certainly wasnt having a go at you , but merely pointing out the info in case you were unaware of the criticism regarding the Tim Reese Discs . Any help is always appreciated by any member of this forum I would think .

Oh by the way, what is 'bright' yellow in the British army in 1879? Lemon

yellow?Less dark than the yellow of other battalion with yellow facing?
