I notice some people have images at their usernames when posting, but I don't know how to get one of Col. Durnford's famous portrait photograph as mine, regarding copyright, etc.

Mr. C., it was really thanks to the Admin, as I would still have been struggling with the tech stuff, as I haven't a clue when it comes to the wider use of computers beyond the basics. scratch

Hi Colin

Yes, I had to contact Admin to ask about an avatar. I had looked all over on the site for instructions of how to put one above my user name, but couldn't find it anywhere, so I got in touch with Admin (by pm), and he kindly told me what to do, I did reply to thank him also by pm, but really I should have thanked him on here, so here goes, many thanks Admin for your help, you are a gentleman Sir.

Colin, there is a model figure of Col Durnford on ebay, it shows him with his hand inside his jacket, and with his pistol in his hand, it looks a good figure, have a look and see what you think.

Regards

Martin.

Martin, there are quite a few 54mm Col. Durnford figures available by several companies - Conte (based on Burt Lancaster by the looks of things), Alpha Models ? (I think John Young said the tunic is wrong), and a new one by Britains (not the same as the Col. D. figure in their obsolete Durnford's Last Stand set). I ended up buying the whole Durnford's Last Stand set by Wm Britain, as it is the most accurate and detailed version of him I've seen. It is also beneficial, as I've got him standing on the ox wagon that was supplied as part of the set, copying the cracking scene in Zulu Dawn, before he was shot and fell into the donga !

Hi Colin

Yes, this is a Britains figure, the number is 20060.

So if you have the full set, no doubt you will have this one.

Martin.

Martin, I had a look on ebay. The individual figure you mention, I haven't got. Only the Durnford's Last Stand set as a collectors' item, which is the wagon and four figures in total. I can't believe how much the one advertised on ebay is at, about £ 120 ! My set was in mint condition and boxed, costing half that.

I don't know which seller you are looking at on ebay, but £120 is far too expensive, and it is not the one that I have seen. There are two models on ebay that I have looked at, one is priced at £19.99, postage £2.25, the seller is Victory Models (one available by the looks of it), the other one is priced at £22.99, free postage, the seller is magpie25004aoi, the shop is manchester house collectables (five available), both are 'buy it now' and both are exactly the same Britains model, ie; 20060, and both are brand new.

Take another look Colin, you should find them.

Good luck mate.

Martin.

Martin, yes I saw the single Durnford figure by Wm. Britain, but it is only a single figure, which is their most recent version of him, usually priced around £ 20. It is a whole set which is £120 and consists of a different Col. Durnford, 2 x Natal Carbineers and 1 x Natal Native Horse trooper, plus the ox wagon.

Right, I understand now, I thought that you meant that you hadn't got the single figure I mentioned, but that you had found one costing £120 (which I thought was far too expensive), I thought that if you couldn't find the figure on ebay I might be able to help you out, that's why I sent you the pm, but if you have seen it, then all is well.

Regards

Martin.
