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.

This one is new to me, up for auction at Haynault Ventes Publique in Brussels 26 March.

H. MALET (19TH CENTURY) - Escort of the 17th English lancer transporting the remains of the imperial prince Napoleon IV.
Watercolor on paper, depicting the scene of the transport of the Imperial Prince Louis Napoleon's remains, deceased in Zululand on May 31, 1879, as lieutenant in the British Army. Signed H. Malet and dated 1880 at bottom left. Provenance: Antique tag on the back: "Collection Farnborough, cat. n°977, collection of Mr D. - Le prince Impérial mort."

Hi Rusteze,

A nicely presented picture.
Some observations however.
The NMP escort with their white helmets are clearly visible, but so are what appear to be palm fronds in the fore ground.
Puzzling is the absence in the picture of typical central Zululand flora, ie thornveld acacia trees, any aloes , erythrina caffra or tamboekie grass. Perhaps artistic licence is applying here and the artist is confusing Zululand with the Sudan.

regards

Good morning Barry,

I know you are partisan but which figures do you think are N.M.P.?

I can see 17th Lancers, what appear to be K.D.G.’s and irregular cavalry including N.N.H., but I can’t see any N.M.P. in the watercolour.

As far as I am aware the N.M.P. provided the escort to the Prince Imperial’s body between PMB and Durban, but I’m happy to be corrected.

Regards,

JY
