Hi Rascal .
I checked Robert Hope's book which is about the 80th Regt in the zulu and Sekukuni campaigns and I didnt find
any mention of these Leather Pads you mention . I also have a photograph featuring a group of 80th Regt Officers
but they dont appear to have Leather Pads , the photo was taken at Fort Tenedos from memory . If you can as sas1
suggests post a photo or the actual statement that would be helpful .
Cheers Marsupial Salute

Hello Skippy, also called the large pocket Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Yes my poor marsupial ,for the shoulder straps of the 80 th Regiment replaced by leather pads, this is not a case won ...

It is discussed that page 15 of the Elite 32 ... Wink

Unable to find photos or illustrations ... Sad

Otherwise I just Perceive that all Officers and OR's frock worn by Hundreds of figures are wrong ... Mad Mad Mad

That there is only one back vent of the skirt so it would two ... Sad Sad Sad

I'll end with me fiddle with those pesky Mad Mad Mad

A shoulder strap is the strap that runs from the tip of the shoulder to the neck and is held in place with a button. There are two of them. Anything hanging from the shoulder (e.g. a revolver) could thus be kept in place and would not fall off when riding. These were replaced by leather pads to stop chafing against the skin of the shoulder.But I have not pictures of leather pads Sad

90th,

The only campaign photograph of the 80th that springs to mind is a group shot, taken outside of some tents.

There's an officer wearing a peaked forage cap and patrol jacket, who is seated and appears to be examining a spear. As far as I can recall there's an officer in a strange bush hat standing on the right leaning on a staff.

I just can't find where the photograph has been used.

Hi Jimu
You are correct , the photo I have is of a group of 80th Officers sitting in front of a tent or tents , one from memory is holding a knobkerrie I think it was . I've seen it in a book before , but I'm not home till tomorrow so cant check . It may have been in Ian Knight's large ' Silver ' Zulu War Book ?. I'm positive I've seen it in one of my books . From memory there is also a variety of headwear and I think uniforms ? .
Cheers 90th.

Pascal,

Instead of harping on about it, why don't you ask the man who made the statement to justify what he has written? When you have your reply from him post it on the forum, so that we may all be educated!

Oh Jim , calmos !

It is very busy and my saying it will send me his answer early May, but it has no pictures, ca it would be ideal.

With hundreds of books owned, supposedly - some on this war, there is no one who found a picture :p;:

Thank you, it's interesting but where they speak of the shoulder straps replaced by leather pads like in the Osprey elite n°32 by IK page 15:

" Officers of the 80 th Regiment appear to have worn unpiped frocks ,with the shoulder straps replaced by leather pads".

Pascal,

Is there a photograph in Brave Men's Blood which is in the author's collection Page 170 (bottom) that seems to show this.

I suggest you contact Ian Knight to ask him.

There are only IK speaking these shoulder straps replaced by leather pads.

And he was there very long

I do not even see how they look!

But on the old pattern serge frock, the pre-1874 pattern, the facing colour went all around the collar not as it appears on the 8oth re-enactor's site.

Les,

Look at bottom image rather than the top image on page 170, (I've amended it on my original posting.) the unit wrongly identified as 24th are actually 80th. Officer seated on the ground to the left of the tent pole as you look at it, and the officer seated in a chair fifth figure from the right appear to have a broad stripe of something on their left shoulders.

After the Research Team of the 80 th ,the most likely explanation is that a small patch of leather was worn on the shoulder under the epaulet to avoid wear and tear caused by shoulder straps. This would be a local campaign decision and would most likely be removed when the regiment
reached Ireland, post 2nd Zulu War.

My first question:

Officers of the 80 th Regiment appear to have worn shoulder straps replaced by leather pads in the zulu war .

Response of a connoisseur :

I have no details of this uniform feature. What is your source and is it anything more than the possibility that the pads were a repair to a damaged jacket.

Cheers

My third question:

A Isandhwana,the uniforms of the mounted infantry of the 24th are brand new...
Those of the 2/24 th are still in good condition ...
But the soldiers of 1/24 th are in rags ,ditto for the uniforms of the 1st/13th L.I. and 90 th L.I.to Kambula.

Response of a connoisseur:

What is your source for this -

My fourth question:

But the 80 th uniforms, were in any state during the Zulu War, they were also in tatters ?

Response of a connoisseur:

Are these uniform details from a source of any relevance or simply an arbitrary artist making up something for show.
