Although not quite on a par with Spitting Image there was quite a lot of  satirical comment generated in the press during the AZW.  As events unfolded in 1879  Punch carried a range of stinging articles about those involved. This little inscription is aimed at those who were advocating a memorial to the fallen Prince Imperial. It is clear that the general sentiment was that this was being generated by a small section of imperialists with ulterior motives (headed by QV) and the implication was that the majority thought him more a bloody nuisance.

Morning Steve
A joke that was passed around the troops after iSandlwana was to the effect:
I would rather make an idol of Wood ( Evelyn) than worship the Lord. ( Chelmsford)

Morning Frank

Did you have a good trip?

I hadn't heard that one before, it's rather good. Often more "truth" can be found in these snippets than the official records.

Hi Steve
Brilliant trip, saw lots of game, from lion to leopard with every thing in between. I may, with Petes indulgence pop a couple of photos on the forum.
On the way back we popped through the Battlefields, just for a quick look see, a group of English guys were parked on the saddle and their guide hadn't pitched up so our twenty minute trip turned into a three hour session and then an overnight at the hotel and another few hours session. But after about half an hour of chatting one chap suddenly burst out with, " I know you, your of that chat forum and we went to school together." Needless to say I was rather taken aback. But what a lot of fun the day turned out to be, and my good lady took the delay to our trip with really good humour.

Cheers Gary, there is loads of material in the 1879
punch..but as Steve might confirm a lot of it is
unfortunately flavoured with the casual racism of
the times and would be inappropriate to reproduce
here.. Salute

Les is right that some of it would be inappropriate to reproduce now, but some is exquisite. This is from April 1879 and is a suggestion that LC might supply a concluding chapter to his little book of guidance for officers. It might have been written today! Wonderful stuff and worth a close read.

Hi Gary
That's right. Written long before Colenso and Edward Durnford did their "thing". And before Durnford's orders were found on the battlefield. Bit like Private Eye today, I think they had LC bang to rights.

Last one from me, also from punch, the sketch of
Lord C was added by me!, in the original there was
a sketch of a pretty girl?.. this is just so funny but
also a devastating attack on his lordship.

Nice one Les.

The one next to bottom just about sums LC up doesn't it,,,,,,,, Now, who is responsible for this?

Maybe he should have had a mirror in his hand at the time, he could have looked directly into the face of the one that was responsible, ie; himself.

Correct Les mate. agree

Maybe the answer to that is in your comment, or, to put it another way, I think it highly unlikely that the ones that do defend him could ever have been qualified to be in the Intelligence Corps of The British Army. Very Happy

Les/Martin
Ive started a different thread rather than post an idea under this one: 'Exactly what was Chelmsford guilty of'.
Have a look

Cheers
