Very Happy Hi Martin .
Hope you will be sitting down when some of my stuff appears , I'm sure the initials SWB will make an appearance on some of my coloured offerings that will be listed on my behalf eventually . I've taken about 40 or so photographs of what I have , which is coloured from the AZW or the time thereabouts , they are all Cigarette Cards , Postcards etc , when I get the chance I'll photograph the Artwork ( prints ) that I've collected .
I'm sure some of which may force you and others to roll your eyes !  Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Joker Joker Joker

Hi Les.

O.K. The fag card was aimed at kids, but kids aren't supposed to smoke are they, besides, some eventually grow up, and if they grew up believing that rot on the back of the card, and watching stuff like Baker's big welsh hoax and Ken Griffiths doco, no wonder they believe that it was the welsh and the then none existant swb that fought at RD. This is the sort of stuff that adds fuel to the mythical fire, and that is why I always arm myself with a good fire extinguisher, so that I can douse the flame of the swb and rekindle the dying embers of the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment, and hope that it will turn into a roaring inferno and burn to ashes the myth of the welsh and the swb.

Great pictures though, thanks for posting them, and thanks to Gary for supplying them.

Cheers lads.  Salute

Martin,

Just to clarify something the Rorke's Drift card was given away for free with a boys' comic called The Rover, rather than in a cigarette packet, as part of a series.

As an aside, did I ever tell you which regiment my late father fought in? I'll let you guess.

Ha, just in and saw that! blow me but that all brought
memories flooding back! we are of course..' not as ' pie '
as you lot!  Very Happy . bloody hell, donkey stones.. i remember
when the rag an bone man came round once and i was
under strict orders from grandma to get a cream one...
needless to say i settled on a ' bow and arrer ' and
did'nt go round for a couple of days, me mam never said a
word! so i went to grans all innocent and unsuspecting, well
she was of an irish disposition if you know what i mean..how
i survived that first five minutes i will never know!

For those south of Wilmslow i imagine all the blank stares the
above engendered!  Very Happy

Hi Springy
There is possibly a touch of Swazi , although they are not titled as such ? . I find it amazing how much one can collect , I didnt realise I had that many Coloured articles . As I said previously I'll photograph the Artwork tomorrow after work , hope I dont forget as I'm having a Zulu Dawn - Zulu night after work tomorrow all by myself !  agree Very Happy Very Happy .

Hi 90th
Sorry had to get the last post out of the way. Yeah Im on my own tonight so I think Im going to do exactly the same, full on Zulu evening. Bag of chips from the local café and some buttered rolls, 6 pack of Castle and theres the ingredients for a perfect evening. Im babysitting the assistant so Im pretty sure he will enjoy a chip roll or so.
It was just that last photo that Les put up for you, looks a very Swazi influence. Mind you Mbelini wasn't to far away from that area at times.
Look forward to the rest.

Cheers
