Zulu.Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

I have belatedly read of the death of the author Major Michael Barthorp.  In our field his best remembered work is his The Zulu War: A Pictorial History.

For further details on Michael, please see:
https://www.familynotices.je/moreinfo/51295/barthorp-major-michael-john

My late friend Kenneth Griffith had a term to describe such a loss in the Victorian Wars community: There’s another redcoat on the floor.

Thank you Michael for your splendid books and articles.

Rest in Peace.

JY

That pretty much says it all John. Interestingly I was looking at my well thumbed version yesterday looking for a particular drawing.
RIP

Hi

As I mentioned on another thread, when I was 13ish, I used my Christmas money to get two books - The Silver Wreath being one and the other was A Pictorial History...... by MB.

Along with Michael Caine, Michael Barthorp is probably as much to blame for my stupid questions on this forum.

RIP
