Hi all,

A member of a wargaming forum I frequent has been looking (unsuccesfully) for the measurements of regimental flags during the time of the zulu war, does anyone happen to know them?

He's been searching for a while so any assistance is much appreciated.

Many thanks

Matt

Hi 90th,

Thanks for the quick response.

The 24th colours are the most important as he's wargaming Isandlwana, anything other regt than that is a bonus .


Many thanks
