Hi Pascal.
This from ' British Forces In Zululand ' which I think you have , page 17 ............ '' Carried on a leather sling over the left shoulder was the Oliver Pattern water bottle '' . This doesn't state whether the bottle was actually worn on the right hip or not . On looking through some books with Coloured Plates the Water Bottle appears on the right hip. Hope this helps .
Cheers 90th. Salute

Hello Gary

Yes I thought so, after having had to rebuild with my "Green Stuff" a hundred of 1/56 scale figures of Zulu warriors of the manufacture Wargames Factory :evil:...

Now I have to rebuild with my "Green Stuff" all the water bottles and theirs leather sling of my figures of British infantry of the manufacture Wargames Factory :evil: ...

Indeed all the figures of British infantry of this manufacture, have their water bottles on the left hip and theirs leather sling over the right shoulder :evil: !

Pascal.

Why don't you buy your models from another manufacturer that produce models with the correct equipment, and on the correct side, that way you wouldn't need to use the "green stuff" to keep correcting them.

Hello M.Cooper

I now have hundreds of lead figurines of all manufactures, for the British imperial army in 1879 in Zululand , British colonial troops in 1879 in Zululand, Zulu Royal Army in 1879 , Swazi warriors of Wood Irregulars , Matabele warriors in 1894 & 1896, Pedi Warriors in 1879, Xhosa Warriors in 1877-78 and BSAC army in 1894 & 1896 , all at 1/56 scale ...

And I wait many hundred of others figures...

But since I do not want the same figure twice (never twice the same figure with me), so I had to take crap from Wargames Factory to increase the quantity ...

I also have the mountain of Isandhlwana in 1/56 scale!

Soon I would have the defensive position of the British to Rorcke's Drift at 1/56 scale!

And early next year, I have a real MH ...

Cheers

Pascal

Certainly looks like it was worn on the right, Perhaps a regimental requirement.

Yes, the regulatory position is right and it can not be worn on the left, due to the haversack ...

I wonder what you do, everyone who bought Wargames Factory figures, this is me, I used to use the Green Stuff ...

Everything will be repaired ...

Cheers

What if the soldier was left handed, in which case he would carry the bottle on the right. Salute

Hi Oldh2.
I'm a leftie and I can tell you not much is set up in regard to lefthanders , so way back in 1879 it would have been worse , it would have still been on the right hip but you would get used to it there once you had grabbed it many times !.

Hi

It is true that left-handers are just 2% of the population and with the Wargames Figures they are 0% of the stock ...

In France when I was a child, forced left-handers to become right handed, it did not work with me, I became ambidextrous ...

And with the legs, I am always left ...

So in the armies of the time, were left to suffer in the early period of their military ...

Cheers

Pascal
