Original oil painting depicting Sergeant John Fitzmaurice by Jason Askew.

"John Fitzmaurice enlisted in the 24th Regiment Foot in 1864. He served with distinction with the Mounted Infantry of the 1st Battalion in Frontier and Zulu wars in South Africa in 1878 and 1879. Near the White Umfolosi River during the advance towards the Zulu capital of Ulundi on 3rd July 1879, he was unseated from his horse when surprised by the Zulus. Sergeant Fitzmaurice would have been killed had not Captain Lord William Beresford, 9th Lancers and Sergeant Edmund O’Toole, Frontier Light Horse ridden back to save him. Captain Beresford and Sergeant O’Toole were later both awarded the Victoria Cross for their gallant action."

Fitzmaurice and this current thread ?????? . I knew I'd seen the picture before , for those who may be interested .
