Neil. If permitted can you obtain a photo of the colours, I do believe this is the place where they are held. It would be greatly appricated.

Update, Talking to Bill the Curator, its open to all, £4 entry to the museum and this includes the lectures. As its a chance for a little fundraising for the museum, please all politics to be left at home, just Redcoats and Zulus.

The Zulu room has been fully re-modelled.

My lecture on the Martini is 10am Sunday, anyone of both "Gangs" (lol) please come over and say as we do in Derbyshire "ayup".
I'll be showing images of the original Trials Martini, the ultra rare cancelled Enfield Martini of 1885, plus chances to handle the Martini, the Swinburn Henry, and lots of other goodies.

Neil. Thanks very much for the up-date. Like Admin I hope all goes very well. Hopefully all those that attend may come away more knowledgeable, and have a greater understanding of the Anglo Zulu War of 1879 than what they have now.

Although I have never met John Young, give him my regards. He really is someone I would like to have a beer and a chat with. Very knowledgeable man. I have every faith in your lecture on the M.H. They are very lucky to have you and John in attendance.

Neil. Kind of you to post this. But I think CTSG is correct. The event Is only for the RDVC gang. Not open to normal people.

However i'm sure all the members wish you well with your lecture. Are you able to make the Museum Exhibition in September.
