Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

I saw this today and was amazed it has commanded so much. I know there were only 200 sets made sometime back but are they really worth whats being bid? 29 bids so far and theres still 2 days of the auction to go.

Hi David . I realise it's possibly a much sought after set , but not for me . It looks to '' Toyish '' for me . 90th.

I agree I would much rather buy the Britains models - they are so much better.

I had the Rorke's Drift set by Britains a while back and I've been looking at this one as the seller also has the add on hospital set for sale as well. Still a little to much for me as i'm in the process of buying a Martini Henry from Neil but at least the price for this set is a little more realistic.
