Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

Hi garynyc and welcome to the forum.

I cannot comment on the spear, shield and other artifacts, but no doubt when you find a way to have the images posted then there will be some comments made about them.

However, I can tell you that if the date (1903), on the tunic is correct, then it is definitely NOT a tunic of the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment of foot, but it could be a tunic of the SWB, which came into being in 1881, two years after the AZW. The regiment that fought in the AZW at both iSandlwana and RD, was the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment and NOT the SWB, therefor if the date is correct on the tunic, it is NOT an authentic tunic from the AZW.

Try contacting Admin by PM about getting your pictures posted.

Enjoy your time on the forum, there are some good helpful chaps on here, many of them with a mine of information.

Cheers.

Well I can't seem to post images from any of my photo sharing services. Can anyone recommend one that works with this board? Thank you.[/quote

Have you tried posting a link to your pictures via 'Photobucket'. rather than trying to upload them directly to the forum?

Hello;

It seems as if the tunic was a 1903 manufacture, however a later owner rigged it up to look like the 24th as a reenactor. i still think its a neat piece.

garynyc,

Perhaps you could have a chat with 'timothylrose', I expect he could advise you from a reenactors point of view.
