A SOLDIER ARTIST IN ZULULAND
William Whitelocke LLoyd and the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879
by David Rattray

Featuring previously unpublished watercolour paintings and sketches of the Anglo-Zulu War. As an officer of the 24th Regiment of Foot, Lieutenant William Whitelocke Lloyd (1856-1897) saw active service in the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. He was also an artist of considerable talent. On his return to civilian life he became the official artist for the P&O and Union Castle Lines, and several books were published of his artwork. But the watercolour paintings and sketches he made during the Anglo-Zulu War have remained unpublished and unknown for more than a century.
From the sea voyage to Cape Town and throughout the Zulu campaign, to the time he departed, the paintings give a graphic rendition, as accurate and informative as it is beautiful, of key events in the campaign, including the aftermath of the battles of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift, the death of the Prince Imperial and the final battle of Ulundi.
In the accompanying text details are given of the progress of the 24th Regiment in parallel with the wider story of the campaign. The use of original diaries and source material infuses the stories of individuals with life, and the paintings themselves shed new light on many of the events of the war. This will be essential reading for anyone with an interest in the Anglo-Zulu War.

"The wedding of William Whitelocke Lloyd (standing centre) and Catherine Anna Mona Brougham in 1885. daughter of Very Rev. Henry William Brougham D.D. Dean of Lismore. George Whitelocke-Whitelocke Lloyd is believed to be the man seated to the left of the bride, while the lady whom upon whom William rests his left hand must be his stepmother, Lady Anne Margaret Butler, 2nd daughter of Richard Somerset, 3rd Earl of Carrick. The brides father Very Rev. Henry William Brougham may be the man on the back row, left side, looking at the bride as she is looking at him."

"Lloyd left the army in 1882 and returned to Ireland where he was married in the summer of 1885 to Catherine Brougham, a daughter of the Dean of Lismore Cathedral, Co. Waterford.[xviii] They settled in Glandore, Co. Cork, where they had two children, Percy and Winifred.

He became a professional illustrator and was commissioned by the Peninsula and Orient Steamship Company (P&O) to draw pen and ink sketches that could be sold to their passengers as a keepsake for their voyage. The work brought him all over the world and he would go on to produce three books of sketches of life on board these luxury liners and the exotice places through which they passed.

Although he also produced a collection of largely humorous sketches of military life called ‘On Active Service’, Lloyd never published his Zulu works.

Perhaps he had planned to but he was tragically killed in the autumn of 1897 when he fell 20 feet from a tree that he was pruning at Glandore. He was just 41 years old. There is a memorial to his memory in Lismore Cathedral.

His only son Percy ultimately succeeded to Strancally Castle but, burdened with debt, sold most of the contents during the 1930s and the house itself was sold in 1959.[xxii]

Winifred managed to keep hold of her father’s Zululand album which, following her death in Cork in 1976, she left to a family called Becher who had cared for her in her old age.
