Cheap as chips! all those featured are plentiful 
and readily available, its the scarcer ones that
seem to be holding there value. but if anyone 
is serious about having an AZW or Africana
library then they are a must, of course speaking
only for myself, not all my books relate directly 
to the AZW or indeed the Zulu, i seemed to have
branched off in all directions, Officer's and then
Politicians accounts, regiments, books on Medals,
weapons ect. as well as ephemera ,prints. maps,
scripts, lobby cards, stills, and an extensive and
still growing collection of Battlefield Pamphlets
there must be about 150 of them now! a few news-
papers from the day inc 2 complete Times,reporting
on the Disaster at Isandhlwana.. but curiously i have
never been interested in collecting hardware, ie, 
weapons, medals ect, i guess there's something for
us all..                                    cheers xhosa

Other knobkerrys I have seen recovered from the various Battles state the Rank of the person finding them. The name plaque has been very well preserved, not a scratch or signs of wearing, looks to new to be what the seller is claiming.

I think I may know an earlier owner of this 'Crealock ' Knobkerry , I'll contact them , they did own it a few years back when these things weren't that expensive .

90th are you really throwing the anchor out.

thats good gives me a shot at some of those medals, If any one is looking to pick up some nice regimental medals Chris Dixon has a a nice selection available at the moment from a number of regiments.

As for understanding wives - I have promised to match my next Sags purchase with the equivalent in handbags and shoes for my wife at christmas. She is now looking up Isandlwana casualty medals for me Very Happy

What I really want to find are some good naval SAGS...

Happy hunting everyone whatever your collecting addition is!!

Hi Sergio
I'm trying , or as my wife says '' I'm very trying '' ! Joker Joker . I have a Naval Bgde on layaway it was to Petty Officer 1st Class
J. Parker HMS Shah , unfortunately , there is minimal documentation anywhere for Mr Parker ! No Sad . I enjoyed the ' Isandlwana ' quip , excellent . I thought I saw one the other day , somewhere ? Shocked scratch . Good luck Sergio , if I find one , would you like me to send you a pm ? Very Happy .

Oh 90th

i ordered that medal from Liverpool medals only to be told their website wasnt up to date and someone had ordered it by phone!!!
MMM put that anchor in mate - or I have no chance !!!
When I obtained an HMS Shah SAGS , Petty officer Tom put me on to the diary of Signal bosum Henry Eason HMS Shah: The naval brigade in the Zulu War 1879. It is in volume VII of the Naval Miscellany.
I'll dig my copy out and see if I can find mention of Parker for you.

Cheers

Hi Sergio
Sorry mate , it's the quick or the dead isnt it ? Very Happy . I have Eason's Diary , Parker , isnt mentioned in it according to POT.
Tom did some digging around for me but unfortunately nothing turned up , that's why I posted a month or so ago if anyone had , or could find some info on Parker , there is just minimal out there in the Public Domain on Mr Parker No No
Have you purchased many SAGS this year ? . agree

Havet picked many SAGs up this year - three more lancers medals and a Stanger Mounted Rifle. I have been doing some research on the Gordon relief Column and picking up Abu Klea clasped Egypt medals.

I am limiting myself to the more unusual SAGS now - so colonials , Naval brigade, special service, casualties and officers. As you know these dont come along very often and of course I have to beat you to them 90th . Oh and 17th lancers of course.

Regards

Hi Sergio
Yes mate I'm thinking along similar lines , I'm looking for a HMS Active , Colonial , NC , NMP , Hlobane Casualty , I did miss an unusual one earlier this year , one of the 4 or 5 NNC's KIA at Ulundi , you didnt get that one did you ????? . Grrrrrrrrrrrr ! Suspect . The Stanger Mtd Rifles is an excellent pick up , I've only ever seen one and that was at Fort Nongqui , I thought about accidentally walking into the case , but it was hanging on a wall about 7 feet up ! , would've been hard to explain
'' Walking into it '' ! LOL . I'm thinking Ian Knight wouldn't have been amused ! LOL .

I know 90th I remember feeling the same way when I visited the Rifle Museum medal room!!

No i didnt see the NNC casualty - where was that on sale?

There is this Fereira's Horse medal on auction
ATM I am not sure about the clasp - Terry sole says it should be 1878-9 but as you know colonial medal rolls are poor. It has a low estimate so you might wabt to have a go.

Happy hunting (unless I want the medal )

Hi Sergio
It was at Auction in Capetown . I was the under bidder , I , probably in hindsight , should've gone higher , it's not like they are plentiful ! No No . Thanks for the Link , but I'll also stay out Salute . Good Hunting to you also , and like you , as long as you dont want what I'm after ! LOL Joker Joker .

Zulu: with some guts behind it arrived 20 minutes
ago, large paperback format ( pity its not hb ) the
first overall impression for me is neutral..inc is a
colour section. most of the images i have posted
on here.. an interview ? with Dickie Owen, and 
also coverage of the 50th celebrations..this book
was obviously timed for that! 

But as the first edition was such a stunner i'm sure
this ed will find its place and allow more people to
see the sheer hard work and dedication to detail that
Sheldon put in..as we know the 1st ed has become 
almost a mythical beast such is its rarity, so if you
have wondered what all the fuss was about i advise
that you get a copy while you can..

As for mine! it will join its big brother in bubble wrap 
in a box somewhere..in the new year, subject to its
availability i will buy another to use and abuse as a
reading and reference tool..up to now i have perused
the ist and now this with kid gloves! turning each page
like it was crystal glass, does that make me sad..well
yes of course it does.
