I know this is not our war but it is stupendous. They are not re-enactors. Done by Marina Amaral - wish she would do "B" Company.

I have that photo in black & white - many years ago, there was two campaigns in focus sets, each with 40 good quality 8 x 10 photographs, on photo paper of the Crimea and Afgan War......it's a pity no one has done it for the ZW.

Hi chaps,

One or two of you are already aware of this, but I approached Marina about doing an Anglo-Zulu War book in colour around 18 months ago. Marina and myself agreed to run with the project and we had a publisher lined up who wanted to take it on. Marina provided me with a sample of an AZW photograph that was sent to her which was fantastic.

I had to put the project on the back-burner due to other commitments (a WWI book that I was contracted to write). Marina was happy to wait but by the time I got back to her she had just signed a contract for a book with Dan Brown which has literally just been released - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Marina's contract stipulated that she couldn't release anything before this one was out, so we once again put the project on the back-burner.

We are both still very keen on doing it, as is the publishing company.

It wasn’t uncommon for photographic studios to hand tint photographs in the 1870’s.

I have a coloured full plate of the ponts at Rorke’s Drift, I presume it was tinted by one of the Kisch brothers.

In the meantime here’s an officer from the KDGs:

Les,

A minor point about the Robert Gould Shaw image, whoever colourised it has depicted him as a cavalryman rather than an infantryman.

I was lucky enough to see his memorial in Boston back in September.

Many thank's JY..only you would point that out! adding to
my education as you invariably do. i have seen pic's of the
memorial frieze, it is of course a work of art and very
poignant. good sh-t.

Hi Les, yes, the shoulder boards/straps should have been in light blue and not yellow, other than that it's a good image of Robert Gould Shaw of the 54th.

I've always been interested in the ACW, and would dearly love to visit some of the battlefields of the ACW, especially Gettysburg (Little Round Top), where the 20th Maine defended their position against the rebs, and the clump of trees where the great General Winfield S Hancock (Hancock the superb), did some brilliant work before being wounded, however, I am not a millionaire, so I will have to make do with watching the DVD LOL!

Hope you are well mate. Salute
