What I've found out to date Pascal is the following that was worn by other-ranks assigned to General Staffs and Colour-Sergeant Maybin may have worn any of the variations. Thanks to John Young for providing me with the following information............The1stLt

Most of the Staff Corps other-ranks I have seen and it is not many are wearing the other-ranks patrol jackets.Basically it was a patrol jacket of a cheaper make than the officers' pattern with no frogging.However, as we know they wore a tunic or a frock as well, due the find at Isandlwana. I believe that was scarlet with blue collars and cuffs with the Imperial crown worn as the collar badge.

Ok thank you ...

- And the red stripes on his tunic were the same as those of a colour - Sergeant of the 24 th?

- And his shoulder straps on his red tunic, were the same as those of a colour - Sergeant of the 24 th?

- And his cuff designs on his red tunic, are formed by a white tap braid coming to a point before forming a trefoil knot as those of a colour - Sergeant of the 24 th?

- And his armament and equipment as those of a color - Sergeant of the 24 th? (rifle + ammunition pouches + bayonet)


I have the same problem for the single company pioneer of the British infantry in zululand , uniform, equipment and weapons, ect ...

Cheers

Pascal,

This is the uniform I was describing to Joe:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Sergeant - Gymnastic Instructor, wearing an other-ranks patrol jacket circa 1881.
John Young Collection.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
A Staff Sergeant, wearing an other-ranks patrol jacket, early 1880's
John Young Collection.

The three chevrons and a crown as above would have been the rank insignia as worn by Mabin.

As to weapons and equipment I imagine whatever was available. Mabin's equipment was pen and paper.

I will post the scarlet uniform of sergeant on the Staff along with details of Pioneers' uniform and equipment in another post.

John Y.

Thank you once again John

As to weapons and equipment I imagine that at RD The Colour - Sergeant George William Mabin took the MH and equipment of a infantryman ...

You'll post the scarlet uniform of a sergeant on the staff along with details of Pioneers' uniform and equipment in Reviews in another post.

This is great! Especially for the uniform of a every single pioneer of each infantry company at Isandhwana...

The Rascal Returns!

Here are the Pioneers of 2nd Battalion, 24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment photographed at Pinetown, Natal, in September 1879.

Thanks for the photos which are always useful, I would also like to see a color illustration for the uniform worn by the Color - Sergeant George William Mabin at Rorke's Drift, can't even find some illustrations? Thanks.

Cheers

I can't find anything on the internet ... Does anyone have anything in color concerning the uniform of the General Staff Corps 1566 Color-Sergeant George William Mabin?

Pascal,

Let’s be honest we don’t actually know what Chard & Bromhead were wearing during the Defence of Rorke’s Drift, it is pure supposition.

As to Mabin I would speculate that he was wearing an other-ranks patrol jacket as illustrated by my photographs above. Rank insignia would have been three gold chevrons surmounted by a Crown as the second photograph showing the other-ranks patrol jacket.

John,

Okay, thank you anyway, but it's still weird that there isn't a single color illustration even in a book even in a book for wargamers.
