It's a big job for someone to do, but I think we could learn a lot more by looking at the faces... ie.. the scar on hooks scalp maybe, or any sign of wounded would help us date the photograph........

E-Mail received regarding the date of the photograph.

“The date I had from Peter Lane (Great Grandson Of Sgt Henry Gallagher and taken from his Granddad’s photo album was September 1879, I THINK he said 29th of that month.”

From a well known Anglo Zulu War Genealogist. Salute

Hi,

September 1879, many wounds would have healed, but scars remain........ does the man in this pic look as though he has a scar on his forehead..... If so, which man received a wound there, or from the description on enlistment from soldiers papers..... who could it be......... who knows... It would make an interesting project to see if we could name just a few more men in this pic.........

Hi,

Iv'e just asked my grown up kids if the man in the pic is frowning or is it a scar...... the verdict was a frown...... ah well wishful thinking maybe, but I think there maybe something good in blowing the picture up to the quality of the above....... It maybe worth a look

Hi all

I wonder if the man could be trying to focus on something he has seen, or might there have been something reflecting the sun in his eyes, which, as a result, makes him appear as if he is frowning or glaring?

Scars, frowning. I wonder if we are trying to read too much into this picture. Plenty of people carry this sort of expression as is their norm.

CTSG,

It would have been but for the fact that much of the handwriting on the photograph is mine!

"John Chard" is most certainly wrong and isn't in my hand!

Either way its excellent work, how long did it take to identify them.

Are we confident that it is Henry Hook at the back? Always looked more like William Jones to me.

Hi all,
In "The men of the 24th" by Toby Giese, there is the same photos with names.
It seems to me that Giese had made mistakes in the identification of the soldiers.

Steve. If you don't mind me asking, what would one pay for a copy. Without frame:?:

bonjour frederick. what an odd little book that is,
a labour of love no doubt,but interesting..

You must admit JY certainly looks like Chard,and i
mean ' really looks ' like him. when was this taken.
was it pinetown. and where was Chard at the time?
still recovering. cheers all xhosa

I am not really inclined to make copies available for sale. You will perhaps have seen earlier in the thread that I did explore possibilities with the NAM, but it came to nought. Sorry to disappoint.

my excuse,i'm tired, the guy who looks like Chard,
the generic beard,but obviously not an officer of
engineers. the photobucket,again thats my work.
intended for my scrapbook i've been compiling for
many years, never intended for public consumption.
i find this learning curve very steep at times.
