Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

I have belatedly read of the death of the author Major Michael Barthorp.  In our field his best remembered work is his The Zulu War: A Pictorial History.

For further details on Michael, please see:
https://www.familynotices.je/moreinfo/51295/barthorp-major-michael-john

My late friend Kenneth Griffith had a term to describe such a loss in the Victorian Wars community: There’s another redcoat on the floor.

Thank you Michael for your splendid books and articles.

Rest in Peace.

JY

That pretty much says it all John. Interestingly I was looking at my well thumbed version yesterday looking for a particular drawing.
RIP

Hi

As I mentioned on another thread, when I was 13ish, I used my Christmas money to get two books - The Silver Wreath being one and the other was A Pictorial History...... by MB.

Along with Michael Caine, Michael Barthorp is probably as much to blame for my stupid questions on this forum.

RIP
