Came across this image, the rifle looks like a M.H going by the leaver action. I was wondering if the dog was connected to the Zulu War. Unfortunately this is all I have. But hoping someone has seen it before.

"Re-the dog query, I would suggest it is 'Jock of the Bushveld', no A-ZW connection, unless you count that the part of the 1992 film was made at Fugitives' Drift."

A big thanks to the Well Known Zulu War Historian. Just a pity it wasn't connected to the Zulu War.

hi Littlehand.
This also from a learned collegue.
" One of the margin illustrations for Percy Fitzpatrick"s " Jock of the Bushveld " . A tale of a hunters dog in the
Eastern Transvaal in the 1880 "s , There may be a zulu war connection , the narrators wagon driver in the story
is a zulu called Jim , who is said to have fought at R.DRIFT .
cheers 90th.
