Hi all

It would be interesting to know in what state were the uniforms of the 90 th Regt. 1 st Bn, 13 th Regt. 99 th Regt. and 2nd Bn,3 rd Regt. in January 1879 ...

They were ragged as those of 1 st Bn 24 th Regt ???

Cheers

Pascal,

What state do you believe the uniforms of the 99th Duke of Edinburgh's (Lanarkshire) Regiment to have been in?

Bearing in mind that the regiment only arrived in Natal during the first week of January 1879. Personally I think they would be in rather good order.

Likewise the 2nd Battalion, 3rd (East Kent) Regiment "The Buffs" as they had served basically as garrison troops within Natal.

You missed a unit off of your list the 88th (Connaught Rangers) Regiment, saw a greater deal of action during the 9th Cape Frontier War 1877-8.

I know from a photograph that I viewed today that at least some the 1st Battalion, 13th (Somersetshire) Light Infantry wore the single looped frock which from memory was officially in use between 1868 until 1874. Whereas the photograph I saw was taken on the eve of the Anglo-Zulu War. The men were also wearing the old-fashioned wicker helmets.

The 90th (Perthshire Volunteers) Light Infantry were very badly off uniform-wise and with their equipment just prior to the start of the campaign, Wood makes much of this in his autobiography. He also comments on the ragged appearance of the Mounted Infantry.

pascal,JY.

" My diary shows that at 6.30 am. i was
inspecting mounted infantry, and a more
ragged crew parhaps was never got to-
gether, except the professional beggars
on a stage". Wood.
He also goes on to criticize the 90th's

Hi John & Lester

The 99th had uniforms in good condition because it has not served during the 9th Cape Frontier War 1877-8 , because it was not in the South Africa .He wore the single looped frock in use between 1868 until 1874.

the 2nd Battalion , 3rd Regiment had uniform in good condition ,because as garrison troops within Natal, it has not served during the 9th Cape Frontier War 1877-8 . ...

the 1st Battalion , 13th Light Infantry and the 90th Light Infantry with Wood to Kambula have many served in the 9th Cape Frontier War 1877-8 . So their uniforms were in tatters .

Some men of the 1st Battalion, 13th Light Infantry wore the single looped frock in use between 1868 until 1874,like the 99th ???

Two kinds of jackets in the same battalion???

The 1st Battalion , 13th Light Infantry and the 90th Light Infantry with Wood to Kambula , had green Glengarries rather the line 's blue,the 90 th were also nominally a scottish regiment (like the 99th,the 2/21 st and the 91st) ,but this was not reflected in their uniform in any way,except the title 'Perthshire' on their badges.

The 88th has not fought in Zululand , but their uniforms were in tatters ...

The Mounted Infantry of Wood were ragged uniforms , but not the mounted infantry of Isandhwana ???

I thought it was the same squadron !!!

Cheers

Pascal
