Found at collectors' fair today, I'm not sure if the Christmas alluded to is that of 1878, 1879 or even 1880 as I found it amongst some 88th & 94th material.

The print appears to depict an officer with green facings accompanied by what appears to by a member of the N.N.C.

Anyone seen the print before?

Not seen it before but an interesting find. I read somewhere that Arthur Ackermann had the idea of producing Christmas cards by using his existing trade cards and replacing the advertising with a Christmas message. He also sold the idea to an american company (Prang?) in the 1870s. The printed message at the bottom is a quite well known quote, and while it could be presaging the conflict in Zululand that is pretty sombre for a Christmas greeting if you knew what had happened, so I would go for 1878. It is certainly depicting a Zulu so who knows.

Great find!

Steve
