[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]"Photograph shows a cricket team, captioned 'Officers and Sergeants of the Buffs, Aldershot 1891'. The individuals in the photo are all identified; several of them had served with the regiment in the Zulu War of 1879 (the 3rd Regiment, the Buffs, had been part of the coastal column under Col. Pearson; they fought at the battle of Nyezane on 22 January 1879, and were later beseiged in the deserted mission station at Eshowe). Among those identified who are Zulu War veterans is Major (then Lt.) R.S.H. Moody. Several of the sergeants are also Zulu War veterans. Image size 8 x 5.5 inches. On the reverse are four smaller photos of Sandhurst instructors at about the same time - Commandant Orr, Captain Simpson and Major Ball".
Its the best i can do with the Photo.
