Would anyone know what brands/ Names of Tobacco/ Cigarettes the soldiers mostly used during the AZW? Chard smoked a pipe for years, which may well of, helped to his demise.
Would it have been a product of S.A or would the Tobacco / Cigarettes have been brought in with the supplies from England.
Back then smoking would have been seen as a social habit, as well as a stress reliever. Somewhat like WW1.

I was reading an article about the evils of smoking and the deceases it could cause back in 1879. So I’m not sure it was a social habit after all. I will try and find the website a post a link.

Cigarettes only became popular in England after the Army brought them back from the Crimean War with Russia (1854-56) Now i didn't know that.

Snuff-taking habits among the Zulus, Rev. Josiah Tyler, who has been a missionary in Africa over thirty years, gives the following
account : —

"The Zulus make their snuff of tobacco, dry aloes, and ashes, grinding it very fine. It is exceedingly pungent, causing tears to flow pro- fusely down their cheeks, which they wipe off with a snuff-spoon made of bone or horn ; this being their only handkerchief. Old and young of both sexes carry snuff-boxes made of small cala- bashes tied to a girdle around the w r aist. Sometimes diminutive reeds full of snuff are inserted in
holes in their ears. When they meet — after the usual salutation, f I see you, friend' — the snuff is passed round, each one taking a good pinch. It is a nasty habit ; their nostrils, after this operation, being covered with filth ; and it is also injurious to health.

"Zulu men, especially young men, are becoming fearfully addicted to smoking; and I perceive, after thirty-two years' observation, that it makes serious inroads on their constitutions. This is one of the unpleasant results of European.
