A vignette by Richard Simkin of Rorke's Drift.John Young Collection.
Simkin was essential an illustrator of military uniforms. Many on the forum will know his work from The Historical Records of the 24th Regiment...
or from Army Life
which is normally bound together with On Active Service
He produced another version of Rorke's Drift which is slightly longer in length, I assume after some folk complained about the chin scales on the foreign-service helmet.
