Lt. Col. Pulleine: His Lordship is of the cetain opinion that it's far too difficult an approach to be chosen by the Zulu command. Col. Durnford: Yes, well... difficulty never deterred a Zulu commander.

PostSubject: Bugle mouth piece   Thu May 24, 2012 9:16 pm

I have the mouth piece of what I believe was one of two bugles on the battlefield. I believe there is a complete bugle in a Pietermaritzburg museum and I believe the piece I have is for the damaged bugle now in Wales. That was the research I did about 15 years ago without this sort of forum. Perhaps someone could advise me ?

Ryan. Are there any markings on the mouth piece.

Scroll down to second picture. The bugle minus the mouth piece.

Yes. The word "POTTER" and another ending in "SON". The rest of the second word can not be read.

Ryan. Here one we discussed a while back. This one was a silver Bugle. But with the same markings.

That is amazing! Thank you! The piece I have looks like bronze and is a bit weathered. Considering it lay on the battlefield until 1985, when I found it, it is in great condition!
