Lt. Col. Pulleine: His Lordship is of the cetain opinion that it's far too difficult an approach to be chosen by the Zulu command. Col. Durnford: Yes, well... difficulty never deterred a Zulu commander.

This is a group photograph of the August 1873 Hythe School of Musketry class. I will not patronize you by asking you to identify the 24 Regiment participant in this class as it would not be much of a challenge---of course, it is Lt. Charles D'Aguilar Pope with his dog sitting center just behind the first seated row.

However, according to what I have been able to determine, there is only one other Zulu War veteran in this group. Can you name him and find him in the class photo? (Isandula Collection)

Good shooting, Xhosa2000, but you're a bit off target but getting close.

Is he wearing a diced forage cap or glengarry?

Clue #2--Look like he's shooting us the finger, but he's not.

RB,

That's so you 'shooting the finger'.

Either Gordon or Alexander of the 2nd/21st.

Yes, JB, it looks like his shooting finger, but you have the wrong guy in the 2/21st.

Lt. Justice 2/21? But I am cheating from a list of those at the School of Musketry in August 1873. There was another AZW veteran present on the course, Lt H H Parr of the 13th, but I don't think he is in the picture.

Bingo!!!! Steve, you've nailed him---Lt. A.J. Justice, 2/21st Royal Scots, standing top, far left at the end, I believe. Well done!!! I checked the Mac & Shad with the JY index and cannot find Lt. H.H.Parr listed as being in the ZW, though, he well may have been. There is a list of participants photographed underneath the group pic for the August 1873 Musketry Class, and this is how I determined Justice was an Anglo-Zulu War vet.

Thanks Isandula. I had jumped to the conclusion, probably quite wrongly, that H H Parr was Henry Hallam Parr - right regiment though and he probably was a Lt. in 1873.

Steve,

Only one H. H. Parr in the Army List, Henry Hallam Parr.

RB,

He isn't in Mac' & Shad', hence why he doesn't make it to the index!

Ah, thanks John. Any small chance it might be him end of back row on the far right? Or is the headgear wrong for the13th?

Steve,

No that's a cavalry officer.

The 13th's badge was a Mural Crown superscribed Jellalabad above a strung horn, with 13 in the centre of strings.

Here's an out of focus image:

Wouldn't this be Henry Hallam Parr, 13th, seated just above Charlie Pope?

Me thinks matches up quite well with this photo of Frere's staff, with Parr seated far left.
