There used to be a very large collection of Zulu War medals. However when I visited the museum, I was informed, that the collection has been rehoused in the National Army Museum. The items below survived the move!

Dave,

It is by 2nd Lieutenant George Rowley John Evelyn, (1857-1879) 2nd Battalion, 3rd Regiment (The Buffs).  It depicts the Battle of Nyezane, 22nd January 1879.

Dave to save you asking LOL  , Second Lt George Rowley John Evelyn died at Eshowe on the Evening 30th March 79 from Fever and Dysentery. He was put on the sick list near the end of February .

It's strange that some museums will allow photography and others won't ! . When I went to the Imperial War Museum in London back in 1982 , I dont think photographing was allowed ? . Does anybody know if it's allowed today ? .

Hi JY .
That would certainly make it difficult to take photographs , no doubt about that ! . I assume they are renovating , what exactly are they doing ? , obviously I'm hoping you are on top of the going on's there ? .

Heres a survey of photography policy in UK Museums. Seems over 50% of survey had no problem.

90th,

I can't help but be on top of things as I pass the IWM to go to work.

The place is being 're-imagined' for 1914 Centenary.

Not. Great deal, I think, The N.A.M has more. Certainly increased the medal collection, going by Pete's post on Canterbury Museum.

Imperial War Museum collection is from World War 1 to date. Nothing Victorian.

90th,

Other than John Chard's Victoria Cross, there's Robert Jones' Victoria Cross alongside it. There's a Gonville Bromhead souvenir piece as well those items are in the Ashcroft Gallery. Which also has a small film about Rorke's Drift featuring clips from Zulu.

In the archives at the I.W.M. are documents from Horace Smith-Dorrien and a photograph album belonging to Thomas Snow of the 1st/13th with a number of Zulu War photographs within.

Oops! But I tend not to count the stuff that belongs to Ashcroft. Presumably Smith-Dorrien's papers are there because of his 20th century service. Nevertheless, they are relevant pieces and I stand corrected.
