Does anyone have a detailed description of Lord Chelmsford, his physical appearance, personality, and the uniform he would have worn?
Also the same for Redvers Buller and Evelyn Wood?
Thanks

Horsefixer,

There's a photographer of Henry Evelyn Wood VC on rdvc on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He is wearing his campaign kit.  'Indian Pattern' scarlet patrol jacket etc as worn in the Anglo-Zulu War.

Wood was a red head, with blue eyes of about 5'7" in height.  As to his personality according to others he could be sulky.

Chelmsford, tall over 6'2" or thereabouts, thin.  Tee-total, according to others aloft and standoffish.

Uniform - Staff Officer's pattern jacket; as per most of the photographs of him in South Africa.  Brown hair & beard;  blue eyes.

Buller, stocky build brown hair & beard.  He wore a Norfolk jacket and a wide-awake hat.  See the recent query re-90th Light Infantry which is based on a Crealock sketch of Buller.
