Has anyone see this or heard about it until now?

It sounds pretty awful. I suppose a copy may have survived in some film vault, gathering dust as the nitrate film decays. Don't think I would rush to watch it though, it just sounds too bad.

Thanks, that's interesting - it still sounds poor to me lol! I wonder why Chard and Bromhead didn't use the telegraph like the female lead in the film, they could have called for help that way lol. I wonder if any copies survive, it may not be a great film but it would add to the historical body of AZW material?

If Chelmsford had taken C Troop Royal Engineers with him for the first invasion they would have been able to do that. He didn't make that mistake for the second.

Chelmsford and Mistake all in one sentence? CTSG would argue that could be construed as an oxymoron!
