Always one on the lookout for images of troops that served in 1879, I picked up this photograph of Cape Castle, photographed at the time of King Cetshwayo's sojourn there.

Cape Castle late 1879/early 1880
John Young Collection

Two soldiers from the 91st Highlanders, and what appears to be a Royal Artilleryman stand by the front gate, but can you spot the other sentries?

Look in the sentry box is that someone standing inside?  Together with a very alert dog!

I wonder who the man is, in the bowler hat standing behind the first soldier in the photo.

Springy,

Have they even started on the Cetshwayo display there yet?

I didn't go in there earlier in the year. My fault as I'd tired the wife out seeing exactly how long Longmarket Street is, not a good move on my behalf! I had to treat her to dinner in Camps Bay on the strength of that little jaunt.

90th,

I send you something else shortly that may be of interest.

Hi John
Must admit I haven't been there for a number of years. I was in Franshoek for a couple of days and popped into the Armchair Explorer Bookshop, he mentioned you were in not to long ago.

Ummm!

Can you spot the other sentries scratch 

Well, one near the R.A man looks like he's disguised as a conical milk churn, another appears to be disguised to look like a dog, yet another behind the R.A man to look like a leaning tree, and one in the doorway (sentry box), to look like a civvy.

Salute
